Ready to have a blast? The USS Constitution Museum is selling activity kits to make and fire an Alka-Seltzer® Cannon at home. Each kit includes printed directions, two 35mm film canisters, 8 Alka-Seltzer® tablets, and three American flag temporary tattoos. This is a great family activity to do while virtually watching USS Constitution’s 21-gun salute on July 4th.
Activity kits cost $5 each and will be available for curbside pickup at the USS Constitution Museum on Saturday, June 27th and Tuesday, June 30th. A separate email with pickup instructions and safety procedures will be sent after a kit is purchased online. At this time, all kits must be purchased online and picked up through curbside service.
