Homeschool Day

Scottsdale’s Museum of the West invites you to an exciting day of adventures and discoveries specifically designed for homeschooled students! On April 20, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., each of the museum’s seven exhibitions will feature an interactive experience designed to encourage children to make choices, engage in conversations, share discoveries, and develop critical thinking skills.

From 1-2 p.m., the museum will offer a wonderful opportunity for students and their families/caregivers to attend a special musical performance by the OK Chorale. This musical trio combines the wonderful harmonies of traditional cowboy music of the silver screen era with the fascinating history of Old West characters and events. (Please note: The OK Chorale performance will also be open to the public; the museum will reserve a limited number of seats for Homeschool Day participants, which will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.)

The museum’s exhibitions and activities are excellent resources for teaching students about the artists of the early American West, Arizona history, Native Americans, and pioneer living. Children will be able to participate in multi-disciplinary activities that include language arts, geography, environmental science, and mathematics. Activities are geared to children ages 5 to 16.

A special $5 per person admission fee will be available for parents/caregivers and children on this day.

To reserve a spot for your child/children and yourself, please send an e-mail to education@scottsdalemuseumwest.org with the subject line “Homeschool Day April 20th” by Friday, April 14th.

The museum is located in downtown Scottsdale at 3830 N. Marshall Way (one block west of Scottsdale Road at First Street). Free parking is available in the city garage under the museum and on the street.
