Homeschool Programming for 2021
The Virginia Living Museum offers homeschool programs for all ages (Pre-K through 12) with monthly 45 minute programs. Programs run from 10am-10:45am.
This year each program will be limited to eight family groups so everyone attending must register at once. All programs are taught by the museum’s professional educators and include a self-guided visit of museum exhibits and are offered at a discount to homeschool families.
As classes fill due to limited COVID-19 capacity, additional times and dates will be added to accommodate all of our homeschool families. Please register early.
