Homeschools

Museum of the Rockies believes that every Montana child, regardless of income or geography, should have the chance to stare down a T. rex, weave on a 1890’s-era loom, or experience the wider world through our changing exhibits. To ensure the museum is accessible for homeschool students, MOR offers limited, free admission via field trips and periodic Homeschool Mondays. 

    Homeschool Group Field Trips

    Montana homeschool groups and families are offered complimentary admission but must pre-book their visit by emailing visitmor@montana.edu at least two weeks in advance.

    • Homeschool Group Field Trips are offered Monday – Friday. Field trips are not available on weekends or holidays.
    • One caregiver per family will receive free admission. Any additional adults will be charged the regular admission rate.
    • A museum scavenger hunt can be made available upon request for students in grades 2 – 12.
    • Groups booking special programs or tours must be sure to have at least 10 children of participatory age.
    • Homeschool groups will follow the same procedures and guidelines as the K-12 public and private school field trips.
    • All visitors must follow the museum’s standard policies. Please see our Plan Your Visit page for current policies.

    Join in the fun down on the farm with a day at the Tinsley House! This 120-year-old homestead, originally from Willow Creek, Montana, gives insight into the daily lifestyle of the Tinsley family who settled in Montana in the late 1800s, and an appreciation for its agricultural history. Learn about cooking, water hauling, woodworking, blacksmithing, and so much more through hands-on learning.


    Museum of the Rockies believes that every Montana child, regardless of income or geography, should have the chance to stare down a T. rex, weave on an 1890s-era loom, or experience the wider world through our changing exhibits. To ensure the museum is accessible for homeschool students, MOR offers limited, free admission on a monthly basis for homeschool families.

    Homeschool Mondays will occur on the following 2022 dates and registration is required. Homeschool Mondays are not transferrable to any other days in each month.

    Homeschool families may make a reservation to visit the museum once per month to engage in museum learning through a self-guided, thematic scavenger hunt.

    Museum members do not need to register as homeschool families. Simply ask for the Homeschool activity when you check in at the Front Desk.

    Admission is free for students and one homeschool parent or chaperone. All extra adults will be admitted at a reduced rate of $10
