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.

Additionally, at 1 p.m. the museum will be screening a nature film in the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust Theater/Auditorium. (The film is approximately 45 minutes in length.)

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 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.
