Homeschool Days

Homeschool families love to learn at the museum! The History Center offers a unique opportunity for homeschooled students and their families to participate in thematic, hands-on STEAM experiences centered on the museum’s exhibits. Programs are designed for elementary school-age students but younger and older siblings are welcome to participate. The fee is $5/student and adults are free and must remain with their child during this activity. Participants are invited to explore the museum following the workshop when held at the Agricultural and Industrial Museum or the Historical Society Museum.
