Visit Us Anytime
Larger groups of home school families and organizations are welcome to reserve Field Trips following the same guidelines as standard School Field Trips. You do not need a reservation to attend any of our regularly scheduled programs, such as Time Travelers, or for a regular visit anytime we're open!

We do have an annual Home School Day in October which does require a reservation. See the description below!
Home School Day
Home school families are invited to join us for an interactive educational program at our historic truck farm and recreated 1920's Shawnee Downtown! Families will self-guide through the activity stations while costumed interpreters help set the stage for your fun and learning. Activities include favorites like farmstead laundry, cooking in the kitchen, and grocery shopping along with lots of additional hands-on chores, crafts. PLUS take part in a Mad Science demonstration in the town's square, interact with visiting farm animals, and enjoy a milking demonstration by Southwest Dairy Farmers! Kids can also pick up a scavenger hunt for added fun.

Admission is $4 per student with 1 parent free per group. Additional adults are $4 each. Pre-registration for either the morning session (10:00am - 12:00pm) or afternoon session (1:00pm - 3:00pm) is required, so please call 9913) 248-2360 to sign up. You are welcome to stay before or after your scheduled time and picnic on the grounds.
