Homeschool Days at Belle Meade:
Hands-on-History!

Roll up your sleeves and experience life on a 19th century farm throughout the changing seasons! Join the staff of Belle Meade Historic Site as we mark the fall harvest, celebrate the winter holidays, and welcome the coming of spring with hands-on activities and living history vendors from across the state. 

Homeschool Days are a great way to connect with other Middle Tennessee homeschool families and to expand your family’s social studies learning!

NEW THIS YEAR:  Our Homeschool Days will be “come-and-go” style, held from 10:00 am to 3:00pm.  Your ticket is good for all day, and does allow your family to visit our grounds, restaurant, and winery (if you choose).  Mansion tours, specialty tours, and family tours are not included with Homeschool Day tickets, unless otherwise specified. 

All programs have outdoor components, and will be held rain or shine. Children must have adult supervision at all times during Homeschools Days. This is not a “drop-off” program; adults are required to stay with students while they are participating in all Homeschool Day activities.

All Programs are Come-and-Go, from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm.

SOLD OUT: Hands-on-Holidays:  December 2, 2o22

Ring in the holiday season with a tour of Belle Meade Mansion’s holiday decorations!  Discover all about Victorian winter parties while you learn to dance the Virginia Reel and enjoy warm winter refreshments.  Take the holidays home with you after making your own Victorian inspired greenery at our wreath making station and keep your hands toasty all winter with handmade holiday scented hand warmers!  NOTE:  With this ticket, you will receive a Mansion tour; however Mansion tours will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.  You will be assigned to the next available tour time when you check in.  We recommend arriving early for the shortest wait time.  You must arrive and check in no later than 2:30 pm in order to receive a mansion tour.
