The Missouri History Museum in St. Louis is closed to the public at least through the end of this month due to the latest outbreak of COVID-19, but its staff has pivoted to offer virtual and contactless activities before Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

People of all ages can discover and celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. this weekend with craft kits, virtual yoga to gospel music, virtual activism workshops and more. A recent press release provides details of the following activities:
