During the Victorian era, the celebration of Halloween took hold in America and many of today’s customs were developed. While costumes and decoration are now different than those in “Molly” Brown’s time, the mystery and surprise of Halloween is a sentiment we still celebrate.

9:30-11:30 (Limited Availability!) | 11:30-1:30 | 2:30-4:30

We’re decking the halls Victorian-style! Have you ever wondered where some of our most beloved Christmas traditions come from? Come find out as we explore what Christmas was like for a Victorian family like the Browns!

*an afternoon program will only be offered if morning programs fill.

Space is limited. Advanced registration required for all Homeschool Day programs. Admission is $12 per child, $5 per adult (one adult is free). Siblings may attend for free, however, if they wish to participate in the activities and take-home components of the program they need to be registered. To register, click here.

The way our programs are currently structured, we have one family group per station at a time. If there is another family you would like to do the program with, that is, do the activities together at the same time, please let us know when you register. Otherwise, we’ll assign you all to different stations so that we can maintain social distancing.
