Homeschool Programs

Homeschoolers can explore the museum in a variety of ways--with their family, in larger homeschool groups or by attending a special program offered just to homeschool families. The museum offers our school admission rate to homeschool groups of 20 or more when you book in advance. We can also do any of the enrichments or focused field study programs for your homeschool group.  


Genesee Country Village & Museum also offers special programs just for homeschool families at different times throughout the year.

This one-of-a-kind interdisciplinary program traces the evolution of winter holiday celebrations in America through the 19th century, with special emphases on the contributions of various cultural groups. Historic buildings decorated to period are staffed by museum educators who help students understand the cumulative and changing nature of holiday observances. Students are invited to join in holiday activities during their visit.

Activities can include:
• Meeting an 1840's Santa and reading 'Twas the Night Before Christmas
• Learning about the history of the Christmas tree
• Singing 19th-century Christmas carols
• Discovering what gift giving was like in the 1800s
• Kicking up your heels with some 19th-century dancing
• Making a holiday craft to take home
• Exploring other winter holiday traditions
