Here at the Pink Palace, we know homeschooling does not just happen at home. Our Homeschool Drop-in Days take place in our museum galleries. This programming provides family-oriented educational opportunities for all ages. We will host a Homeschool Drop-in Day every second Thursday of the month during the school year (excluding December and January) from 1-2pm.
Each month will feature interactive activities based on a different theme.
