The JMM is the perfect place for Homeschool Families. Homeschool Days are special days designed for homeschoolers of all ages to participate in our thematic, hands-on experiences centered around the Museum’s exhibits. Students are encouraged to work together, ask questions, and think critically. Our next Homeschool Day will take place on Monday, April 20, 2020 in conjunction with the Scrap Yard: Innovators of Recycling original exhibit.

Homeschool groups with 15 or more students are encouraged to book a visit to the Museum separate from our Homeschool Days. For more information and bookings please contact our School Program Coordinator at or call 443-873-5167. We would love to tailor a unique experience for your students.
