Programs for Homeschools

Homeschool family making Wampanoag pottery

The Pilgrims taught their children reading and writing at home. The Wampanoag used the natural world as an outdoor classroom where they could teach life skills. The Museum is an ideal place to let your children explore the past by being curious, interacting with Museum staff, and trying new things.
