Homeschool Programs

Children learn to create buildings and places while focusing on teamwork and problem-solving skills. Homeschool programs accommodate ages 4–14 and a range of ability levels and learning styles.


Homeschool groups and co-ops are invited to register for school programs, designed for groups of 10–30 students and offered Monday-Friday, late September through mid-June.


Individual homeschool families can attend one of the Museum’s popular Homeschool Days to participate in hands-on educational programs with other homeschool families.
