Homeschool Days at The Salem Museum

The Salem Museum is pleased to announce a new program for homeschool families. Homeschool Days will take place monthly for students ages five and up, giving students an opportunity to explore local history this semester.

Students will learn interesting stories from our past, and get to hold pieces of history in their hand.  Each program will include an hour of hands-on history instruction, group discussions, and a scavenger hunt to encourage exploration of the Salem Museum’s exhibits. The schedule is designed to give participants an opportunity to get to know other students.

Programs will be held on the third Wednesday of each month at 1:00pm, with a new topic each month.
