Programs for Homeschoolers

The Montshire Museum of Science offers unique programs to enrich your family’s homeschool curriculum with opportunities for inquiry-based science learning. Through these multi-week drop-off programs, a small group of learners will engage in hands-on, creative exploration of science, technology, engineering, math and the arts at the Montshire.

Make the Montshire
part of your lesson plan

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.

For more information please call 802-649-2200 (Monday–Friday, 8:30am–5pm) or email montshire@montshire.org
