Homeschool Program

Come take part in our Homeschool Museum Classes!

Make the Museum a part of your homeschool studies. Homeschool Museum Classes are designed to serve small homeschool co-op groups or individual homeschool families.

The program consists of 2 hour classes held on the first Wednesday of the month from October to June. The theme of each class changes from month to month. Participants are divided into small groups by age, and each group works with the same Museum Educator throughout the year. Each class takes place in the Museum's permanent galleries, and is designed to be an interactive lesson that encourages students to examine objects and ideas through a variety of activities including discussion, drawing, writing, role playing, and games. Families can sign up for as few or as many classes as fit into their schedule.
