Past Homeschool Days have featured theatre performances, primary source document investigations, genealogy projects, historic music, storytelling, craft activities, and more. All activities are available from 10 a.m.–2 p.m., and families can spend as much or as little time at the museum as they like. Parents appreciate the ways the Homeschool Days offer hands-on educational enrichment activities as well as opportunities to meet other homeschool families. Additionally homeschool programming provides parents with new information about historical topics. In a recent survey, one parent wrote, “I really value the exposure to topics I don’t know intimately.”
In spring 2017, the Museum plans to host the following Homeschool Days: Feb. 20 “Historic St. Louis”, March 20 “Women’s History”, April 10 “St. Louis’s Civil Rights Legacy”, and May 15 “Remembering War and Honoring Veterans.” Homeschool families interested in participating are invited to join the Museum’s homeschool enewsletter. A detailed schedule is released two weeks prior to each event via enewsletter, along with the link to register for the day.
To people of all ages and backgrounds, the Missouri History Museum is a leading cultural institution and community resource that offers exhibitions, programming and collections to explore the history of the region in order to better understand the world we live in and build a stronger community for the future.
The Jefferson Memorial Building section of the Missouri History Museum was originally built as the first national monument to Thomas Jefferson, preceding the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C. by more than 25 years. The museum now features special exhibits and St. Louis history galleries with interactive stations for children throughout.
