The Michigan Historical Museum now offers some of its most popular educational group programs to homeschool students.
2012-2013 Dates & Programs
Our homeschool programs for 2012-2013 focus on how we learn about the past. Students will be introduced to the skills historians use as they work with documents, photographs and artifacts to answer questions about our building, the State Capitol and nearby neighborhoods. All programs run from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in the Morris Learning Center (first floor, east wing).
Fee: $6 per student per class ($5, if registered by the Monday before each session). Includes museum admission; parents and siblings enter the program for free.
