The annual educational event features a variety of hands-on learning activities for public, private and home-schooled children grades K-12. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m., and the event concludes at 2 p.m. each day.

The museum and villages are open for self-directed tours, with demonstrations highlighting the many unique aspects of the time period held throughout the day.

Admission is $7 per student and accompanying adults are $2. School personnel accompanying students are free. Payment can be made to the Cherokee Heritage Center with cash, check, purchase order or credit card. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged.
