Living History Farms
11121 Hickman Rd

Living History Farms’ Homeschool Days are the perfect opportunity for families to learn together! You and your children will have the opportunity to tour the museum’s many historic areas, participate in hands-on activities, and have fun!

Stewardship, the responsible use and protection of the natural environment is a year-round endeavor. Talks, activities, demonstrations, and games, both at the museum’s historic areas and in conjunction with community partners, will help us learn how we can all be good stewards of the land.

We suggest that you plan at least 3-4 hours for your experience. The museum is open from 9:00am – 4:00pm. Activities will take place from 9:30am – 11:30am and from 1:00pm – 3:00pm.



Online registration opens at 10am on August 6, 2019 and ends at noon on September 5, 2019. Anyone who registers early receives $1 off regular admission.
