Homeschool Day

Enjoy a day designed for you! Homeschool Day at the museum is held in October. Explore the museum, enjoy hands-on activities, learn about our programs, and meet other homeschool families.

Last year's Homeschool Day was October 9, 2019.

We will not be hosting Homeschool Day in 2020, but we are looking forward to holding it again soon!
