Due to the overwhelming response from home schoolers in the area, we have developed a program designed to fit their needs. On the second Tuesday of each month we have "Home School History Days" from 10 until 11 a.m. These programs include a special tour or class, an activity, and a chance to go through the Museum. These classes are designed to meet a variety of ages. Please see our calendar of events for upcoming programs. All Home School events are free for Museum members and free with admission.
Designed for older homeschoolers this four-part series allows students to go more in-depth with a specific subject than our regular home school events. Each series includes hands-on time with collection items, an off-site visit, and a project to be presented during the final class. Home School History Workshops are for Museum members only and are $25 per family. Reservations are required and limited space is available. The next series will begin in January of 2011 focusing on the Civil War. 2011 marks the 150 anniversary of the Civil War; this series will include a visit to Fort Sumter and special exhibit tours. Please register through our calendar of events.
The Charleston Museum's collection is a great tool for helping scouts meet their badge requirements. Let us plan a badge workshop for your troop! We can also offer service hours and many leadership opportunities. Contact the Education Department for more details.
