PSA: Atlanta History Center Homeschool Day Tuesday September 8

The Atlanta History Center’s next Homeschool Day is Tuesday, September 8, 2015 from 1:00 – 4:00 PM.  This month’s theme is Georgia Farm Life.  Become a Georgia pioneer and enter into a real working farm to find out what it was like to live during the 1800s. Immerse yourself in a first-person experience, meeting over a dozen characters from the era, and helping with the chores needed to survive. 

During this ongoing, hands-on experience, kids of all ages will love interacting with historic characters while they help wash clothes, make candles, listen to stories, and assist our cook, woodworker, blacksmith, farmer, and so much more. Come dressed and ready to get your hands dirty!  (Please note that all activities will take place outside on the Smith Family Farm, rain or shine.)  

Admission to Homeschool Days is $8.50 for nonmembers; $6.50 for children of members; and free for adult members. Discounted rates are available for groups with 10 or more children. For information or to make group reservations call 404-814-4018 or .
While the special programming is only from 1:00—4:00 PM, you are welcome to spend the entire day at the History Center for this reduced rate. Many people come early (we open at 10:00 AM) and spend the first part of the day exploring our exhibitions, gardens, and historic houses, have lunch at our small Chick-fil-A (open from Noon—2:00 PM), and then participate in the Homeschool Day program in the afternoon.
We are currently undergoing renovations to our main entrance.  The Atlanta History Center main entrance will be temporarily located at 3299 Andrews Drive, admissions and ticketing will be temporarily housed in the atrium of our Archives building, McElreath Hall, and free and accessible parking will remain available on-site.  All exhibitions will remain open, but guests will enter the museum through the back of the building.  Signs are posted to guide you.
