News from the Education Corner!

New in 2015!  Sotterley’s Plantation House tours are even more interactive and visitor-centered than ever before!  Our house now provides more access without ropes or other barriers, plus hands-on items, providing a more authentic experience. For the first time, guests are invited to take flash free photographs inside of the Plantation House. It was once a home, after all!

Hands-On History!  We are offering three education programs exclusively for Sotterley members.  Limited to 12 people, each program gives a different insider experience to an important aspect of our history and material culture.  For this Members Only event, the cost is $20 dollars per person, recommended for ages 16 and older. Please call the office at 301-373-2280 to register for one, two, or all of the following Hands-On History events: “Lost Treasures” on Sunday, May 31st at 3:00 p.m.; “Chinese Influence in the 18th and 20th Centuries” on Sunday, June 28th at 3 p.m.; “Secrets of Sotterley” on Sunday, Sept 20th at 3 p.m. Not a member? Not a problem! CLICK HERE to become part of the Sotterley family!

Our first Homeschool Day “Tidewater Plantation Life” was held on April 21 and was a tremendous success! We hosted 150 students and parents, who were able to learn and enjoy Sotterley on what turned out to be a lovely day.  The next Homeschool Day is scheduled for  September 15th and will feature Sotterley’s "Slavery to Freedom" program.

Admission: $5.00 per person. 
Children under age 5 FREE. One adult per family FREE. 
Minimum Charge $5.00 per family
Purchase tickets at our Visitor Center. No reservations necessary. Rain or shine event.

As always, Sotterley supports students and teachers with school field trips from St. Mary’s, Calvert, Charles, Prince George's, and Anne Arundel counties in Maryland.
