Programs Designed for Home Learning

The Polk Home and Museum loves our homeschool community! We offer a variety of programming designed for parent educators and cooperative homeschool groups.

Homeschool History Day

Several scheduled days a year, we invite students for a day of tours, living history, activities, and period toys and games. (2-3 hrs.)

Homeschool Field Trips

Much like our traditional school field trips, we invite homeschool groups of 10 or more to enjoy our site offerings including a guided tour, the Sister’s House video and museum, and a short program on our historic kitchen. Optional activities include period toys and games and special exhibitions when available. (1-1.5 hrs.)

Homeschool History Club

Coming in Fall 2020. Our licensed educator will lead on-site lessons and activities based on the home, collections, and garden.  More details to come.
