Home Schools

Come visit us for memorable learning adventures! Explore the museum through a factory tour and workshops designed especially for home schooled children ages five to fourteen.

Factory and Museum Tours for Home Schools

On their tour of APH, young people can see the production of braille publications, the recording of Talking Books, a demonstration of educational materials designed for people with visual impairments, and experience the exhibits and interactive displays in the Museum.

Each tour is tailored to suit the time each group has available, the age level of the participants, their educational interests, and any special needs.

For younger groups we recommend a one-hour visit. Allow an hour and a half or longer for older students.
