​We encourage homeschool families to visit for a day of fun and learning! Choose the self-guided tour, a boat trip, or one of our standards-based programs. Onsite programs can be scheduled for at least 10 students within a similar age range. 

We also have many great educational activities and lesson plans available for at home learning.
