2018 Homeschool Classes
Gallatin History Museum will host four different class packages in 2018. Each series is intended for a different age group, and follows a different learning theme. Our classes are interactive, and focus on student participation and object-based learning. Students will work towards creating a final presentation, and will receive a variety of take-home resources.
Students must register for all four classes to participate. Once you are registered, we will send you an information packet with further details.
Classes take place from 9 am to 12 pm at Gallatin History Museum. Please see below for class dates.
Registration for each class series is $120 for non-members, and $75 for members or family pass holders. Scholarships are available.
