A day just for homeschoolers! History comes alive as students travel to the 18th century to learn about daily life in the colonies. Possible activities include:

    • Don colonial clothing and learn about the wardrobe of a colonial child
    • Hear about the day in the life of a militia man from a local Revolutionary War participant
    • Try out some colonial games, including hoops and graces
    • Participate in a mock one-room school house demonstration
    • Hear stories of sailors and maritime adventures
    • Use a quill pen to write



  • ​This is not a drop-off program. Parents must accompany children for the duration of the program.
  • Admission for the program must be paid in advance.  Payment may be completed either online or at the museum. No refunds will be made unless the Museum cancels the event. 
  • Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to scheduled program for check-in.  
  • ​The event will take place rain or shine. Please ask your students to dress appropriately for the weather, as some activities may take place outside.
  • Due to the historic nature of the buildings, the museum is not handicap accessible.
  • Parking is quite limited, so ​carpooling is encouraged. Two hour on-street parking is available and the Museum’s parking lot is located on Spring Street (behind Folsom Tavern). Please do not park in the lot located near the Ladd-Gilman House (yellow building) and bank or bank parking lot.
