In keeping with our field trip theme for this month, let's now talk about those fabulous homeschool days at local area attractions! Homeschool days are great because we can generally get discounted (and in some cases FREE) admission, but also because our homeschoolers feel kind of special when it's homeschool day.

What homeschool days in and around Iowa have you taken advantage of in the past? Which ones are you planning on for this year? Any suggestions/recommendations/complaints?

Here's a good website:

Grout Museum District - this is actually a set of museums and centers including the Grout Museum of History & Science, the Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum, the Bluedorn Science Imaginarium, the Rensselaer Russell House Museum and the Snowden House.

They don't have any homeschool days listed, but they have had homeschool workshops in the past and it may be that they just don't have them on the calendar yet. Definitely worth contacting them to find out!

Looking forward to seeing what everyone adds!
