Offering this event gives home schooled children a chance to explore the museums, and to participate in educational programs at both locations. The museums are conveniently located directly across High Street from each other, giving home schooled children flexibility to either spend the day with their family exploring both places or to divide and conquer. For example, younger children may play on the fire truck and bubbles at the Children’s Museum, while older kids will be inspired by Virginia’s incredible sports history and hit the basketball court and other interactive play areas at the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame & Museum. Both locations will have grade-specific educational programs throughout the event.
