Winter Homeschool Day 2019

Event/Weather Updates: Friday December 13….

Homeschool Day – We advise waiting until Noon to arrive due to the prevalence of icy road conditions throughout the morning. Outdoor activities will become alternate indoor activities today. Pre-purchased tickets are good for a full year if you wish to use them on a different date (including spring and fall homeschool days in 2020).

Join us for Winter Homeschool Day at the Frontier Culture Museum.  It might not really be winter yet, but we’ll be holding a special homeschool day emphasizing seasonal and holiday activities on all of the Museum’s exhibits.  Bring the entire family and learn about a variety of historic holiday traditions.
