This multipurpose facility, which houses the National Homesteading Museum, brings the epic homestead story to life for visitors of all ages and demonstrates the true scope and importance of the Homestead Act of 1862. State-of-the-art exhibits present homesteading in an interactive setting. Such topics as the Act's influence on immigration, agriculture, industrialization, native tribes, the tallgrass prairie ecosystem and Federal land policies are presented in an educational and thought-provoking manner.
The Education Center at Homestead National Monument of America provides visitors the opportunity to meet their quest for further knowledge about homesteading through hands-on arts and crafts or living history demonstrations, real life science experiences, and distance learning. The Education Center also hosts many temporary exhibits and special programs. Ask the Ranger at the Education Center [or at the Heritage Center] about these opportunities.
