Homeschool Days at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta

Last month I shared a list of  attractions that offer special discounts on certain days just for homeschool families. I’m excited to let you know that I’ve discovered another attraction that can be added to the list.

On four separate Friday’s beginning September 24th and continuing on December 3rd, February 25th  and April 29th  the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia will offer discounted walk-up tickets to homeschool families.

No advance registration is required, but you should be prepared to present verification of homeschool/non-traditional school status when purchasing your tickets. The website suggests some examples which include a homeschool letter of intent, verification of online school registration, or a letter or tuition bill from a co-op.

Admission will be $15 for adults, $6 for students and free admission to museum members. There are no additional costs for workshops or docent-guided tours offered on the Homeschool Days. Included in your admission, you will have access to all special exhibitions, the Permanent Collection, and the Greene Family Learning Gallery.

Homeschool families will also receive a voucher for $6 parking in the Woodruff Arts Center garage or the Boys and Girls Club garage as well as a discount on purchases made in the Museum Shop and a savings on a Museum membership at the Educator Family level.

Details on the Homeschool Days are as follows:
