Additional Information:

Homeschool Days are from 10:00am-3:00pm and tickets are available for purchase at the door the day of the event. There is no limit on the number of participants for Homeschool Days, and an average of 75-150 people participate in each event. Families are able to explore the museum at their own pace throughout the day. We recommend arriving between 10:00-11:00am in order to take full advantage of everything the museum has to offer. A brown bag lunch is recommended as the museum does not have onsite food service. Indoor and seasonal outdoor seating is available on a first come, first served basis.

All students must be accompanied by an adult and activities/programs are subject to change. Museum memberships, complimentary passes, library passes, corporate admission passes, or other discounts do not apply to homeschool day fees. Online museum general admission tickets also do not apply to homeschool days. Some activities (such as full-motion or advanced flight simulators) may incur an additional fee and tickets for these activities will be available for purchase on a first come, first served basis during the event.
