Next Homeschool Day on February 12!
Upcoming Homeschool Day
Gems and Minerals Unearthed!
Tuesday, February 12, 2019
Investigate the fascinating world of Mineral Sciences! Minerals, rocks, gems, ores and even meteorites inform everything from how we view the past to technologies of the future. For this Homeschool Day, look closer at our world-class collections, talk with museum scientists, and learn more about the over 2,000 specimens in our Gem and Minerals Hall!
As always, these days are exclusive to Homeschoolers, so you won't be sharing the museum with traditional school groups. No prior reservations are required. The best part? Museum admission and all special Homeschool Day programs are free for all Homeschoolers!
