Description

This museum offers hands-on field trips for elementary and secondary students studying Oklahoma history. Programming takes place in an original 1890s schoolhouse, a 1904 dairy barn and a 1909 farmhouse. Docents in period attire provide students with activities appropriate to the time such as using a slate, scrubbing laundry on a washboard, grinding corn and playing with old-fashioned toys and games.

Cost is $7-$10 per student with school staff admitted free of charge. Scholarships are available. Contact Education Director David Sapper at 405-235-4058 for more information.

Harn Homestead is part of the fabric of our state’s history and who we are, and I think it’s important for children to grow up knowing that. It’s definitely a field trip that reaches the heart. Denise Fowler, Clegern Elementary
