El Día de los Tres Reyes Magos / Three Kings Day program
Join us to share in the joy of The Three Kings story. Celebrated widely by many cultures around the world, and observed in many Spanish-speaking countries, the Feast of the Three Kings honors the Epiphany. At the museum, you can make and decorate a festive crown to proudly wear, enjoy lively and traditional Mariachi youth performers, delight in gifts (chocolate coins) handed out by the kings, and learn more about the holiday by watching a short video in the theatre. The day is traditionally celebrated with family, food, gift-giving, and a Rosca de Reyes (sweet bread or King’s Cake).
