The Montshire offers programs and special days for homeschoolers to explore science in unique and fun ways. Homeschool groups are also invited to schedule their own group visit and a staff-led workshop.

Organize a ‘school visit’ to the Montshire, sign up for special Homeschoolers’ Days and workshops, or visit on your own.

Become a Montshire member and visit the Museum as often as you like.
