A SPECIAL INVITATION TO HOMESCHOOLERS


COLUMBIA, PA: The NAWCC National Watch & Clock Museum in Columbia, PA, has declared Tuesday, October 16, Homeschool Day at the Museum. Families who homeschool their children are invited to spend time at the Museum on this day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and participate in the following crafts and activities:

  • Enjoy a behind the scenes tour of the Museum
  • Learn how water can be used to tell time
  • Make a working clock to take home
  • Go on a scavenger hunt through the Museum exhibits
  • Learn about how the sun can be used to tell time
  • Play time-related games
  • See a watch or clockmaker at work and learn about special techniques in making clocks, like artistic skills for decorating

Clockmakers have always taken pride in designing and creating timepieces that are works of art. For example, stenciling the glass on the front of wooden shelf clocks was a nineteenth-century craft and design technique still used today. Demonstrations held throughout the day will inform and entertain families, where they will be able to see firsthand how a clock becomes a work of art.


“Along with other events and workshops, the Museum enjoys offering a Homeschool Day each year because it’s another opportunity for families to see that the Museum is not only educational but also a whole lot of fun —for all ages,” states Kim Craven, NAWCC Coordinator of Marketing & Special Events.


Registration for this special Homeschool Day is required by October 9; cost per student, age 6 and over is $10 with no charge for an accompanying adult. For each additional adult attending there is a $6 charge with no charge for children under 6 years of age (unless they want to make a clock for $6). Please contact admissions at 717.684.8261, ext. 234 or email giftshop@nawcc.org to register or for more information.
