Our homeschool program is getting a makeover! Our new, drop-in Hint of History sessions will allow families to customize their learning experience and participate in activities at their own pace. As your family explores the museum, you will find a learning opportunity geared toward that month’s theme on each floor, including a mock trial in our historic 1927 courtroom! (Note that mock trials are planned pending participant availability.)
Our monthly Hint of History sessions will offer a range of diverse topics in Central Florida history to help families supplement their studies with interactive and engaging activities. Our program is geared toward children ages 5 to 11 years old, but all ages and families are welcome to join in on the fun and learning.
You can register online for a discounted price or pay upon arrival. Every family member will receive an activity guidebook and a collectable bracelet that allows you to access all that our Hint of History program has to offer!
Hint of History takes place the second Tuesday of the month, 1 – 4 p.m.
