HomeSchool Day

The State Museum of Pennsylvania, 300 North St., Harrisburg, will offer HomeSchool Day on Wednesday, Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The program will offer a backstage pass to history, archaeology, paleontology and the fine arts. The event is tailored for families and community organizations that teach in a home setting.

Skilled curators and educators will guide participants through Pennsylvania's historical milestones. Both children and parents will have the opportunity to discover the origins of the museum's most-loved exhibits.

Visitors will spend a portion of the day in gallery talks hosted by the museum's curatorial and education staff. These presentations will focus on archaeology, paleontology, history, fine arts and collections.

Each session will last about 20 minutes, including a brief question-and-answer period. In addition, volunteers will staff a series of hands-on stations throughout the museum that will allow visitors to not only view exhibits, but to handle some of the objects.

Other scheduled activities will include story time and back-to-back planetarium showings of "NASA's Journey to Mars." There is a per-person program fee for "HomeSchool Day," which includes admission to the planetarium. Members of the Pennsylvania Heritage Foundation, including State Museum Affiliate members, will be admitted free of charge.

To register for HomeSchool Day, readers may call 772-6997 on Mondays through Fridays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. For more information about the museum, readers may visit
