Homeschool Days

Homeschool Days are a great opportunity to network and mingle with other homeschoolers while you are learning and making discoveries. Each Homeschool Day has themed Pop-up activities throughout the Amazeum for families to explore.

There are two ways to attend Homeschool Day: by booking your very own Unfield Trip visit to the Amazeum, or by exploring on your own as a family. Only homeschoolers will be able to reserve Unfield Trips on Homeschool Days, so this is a great way to have fun and meet other homeschool families and students! Special parameters apply and advanced registration is required. Check out this FAQ sheet for full details. 

Homeschoolers will receive a special 20% discount in Curiosity Corner museum store during Homeschool Day!
