Programs for Homeschoolers

The Montshire supplements and enriches homeschool science programs with exhibits and programs focusing on natural history, earth sciences, technology, astronomy, physical science, ecology and nature.

Make the Montshire
part of your lesson plan

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.
