Details and Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register?
1. After reading this FAQ section, click on the event and time you would like to register for. You should be taken to a registration page. Payment is due at the time of registration. If you are unable to register, it’s possible that session has filled. Please email education@mollybrown.org with any registration problems.

Do I have to register and pay in advance?
Yes.  Due to ongoing social distancing measures, our capacity is severely limited. This means that many of our programs fill up months in advance, so in order to reserve your space, advance registration and payment is required. This is true whether you are registering for a program in one month or or 3 months from now.

Why can’t I register for any programs past December?
Due to ongoing issues with registrants not showing up for programs, we are only allowing families to sign up for programs a few months in advance, as opposed to all 2022 programs. We will open up registration for spring programs towards the end of fall.

How much does it cost?
$14 per student and $5 per adult. 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. Space is limited. Advanced registration is required.

If we can’t come, are registrations refundable?
We typically do not offer refunds for program registrations.  If your plans change and you can no longer make it, as long as you let us know two-weeks or more before the date of the program, we can generally transfer your registration to another program or event, provided there is space. You would still be responsible for any difference in cost, if one exists. If you let us know less than two weeks out, there are no refunds or transfers.

Can younger siblings attend?
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 as participants.

Will my friends and I be able to attend together?
If you would like to be with another family, let us know after you register by emailing education@mollybrown.org.

When do programs take place?
Unless otherwise noted, 2022 Homeschool Days take place from 9:30-11:30 and 11:30-1:30 on the days listed above.

What ages are your programs recommended for?
Our programs are recommended for ages 6+.

Will my group get a tour of the museum?
Each of our homeschool day programs has a different theme. In each program, you will learn a little bit about the Browns and Victorian life in Colorado. You will not get a full tour of the museum during a homeschool day program, however, activities take place in rooms throughout the house so you will get to see different parts of the house.

Are masks required?
No, at this point masks are no longer required.  Visitors and staff are encouraged to wear them, especially if unvaccinated.
