Explore science, history and aviation!

Our Homeschool Day programs are held throughout the school year, and are a great opportunity to get your homeschoolers out for an exciting trip to the Museum. The programs are designed to enrich the education being provided at home, by offering the students educational experiences and experiments you might not have the ability to do in the home.

Homeschool Days are drop-off programs, from 10:00am - 2:00pm. Pre-registration is required and attendance is capped at 15 participants. Lunch is not provided, and we do ask that all students be dropped off with a packed lunch. There is no on-site cafe option at the Museum.
