A special program just for homeschool students!

Get immersed in the past at Genesee Country Village & Museum during a hands-on visit to explore life and food in the 19th century. Students work with a museum staff member to cook in one of the village’s historic kitchens. They visit our Pioneer Farm to discover what it was like to be a self-sufficient farmer in the early 1800s.  Students watch a demonstration by the potter and learn about his role in providing equipment for food preservation. They help with chores at the Brewery and stop at the Altay General Store to learn how the Erie Canal expanded food availability in New York State. They also get to taste the rich dark chocolate of the past and examine its history during a tasty presentation of our Historic Chocolate program. 

Ages 8 and above, limited to 20 students. Must pre-register online. Call 585-294-8218 with questions.

The group will self-guide together through each station, so it is recommended that the student have an adult present. Bring a bagged lunch (restaurant will not be open).

$11 per student, $11 per adult (musem member adults free).
