September 12-27, 2009
At Jamestown Settlement and the Yorktown Victory Center, your homeschool students will love discovering the sights and sounds of the 17th and 18th centuries while learning about their nation’s history. And you will love the variety of curriculum-based education programs offered for a range of grade levels – all taught by trained museum educators.
Homeschool programs will be offered September 12-27 at Jamestown Settlement and the Yorktown Victory Center. A special homeschool ticket is available, and the fee is $10.25 per family member (youth or adult) for general admission to both museums. Homeschool ticket holders can visit both museums as many times as they like during the program date range. The fee also includes optional hands-on programs and guided tours of Jamestown Settlement and the Yorktown Victory Center. All programs address Virginia and United States standards of learning for history and social studies.
Homeschool admission tickets are available by calling Group Reservations at (757) 253-4939 or at the visitor services desk at either museum. Once you have purchased tickets, please pre-register for hands-on programs and guided tours by calling Group Reservations at (757) 253-4939. The pre-registration deadline for hands-on programs and guided tours is 5 p.m. three business days prior to the program/tour.
Plan time to see the introductory film, visit the museum galleries, have lunch and visit the gift shops at Jamestown Settlement before or after your program and tour. At the Yorktown Victory Center, visit the museum galleries, view the film and visit the gift shop.
