History for Half Pints Attractions
Making history come alive for all ages!
History for Half Pints was started in 2016 to help families with young children engage in the history and legacy of the Hormel Historic Home.
Family Self-Guided Tours allow parents and children ages 2-10 to explore elements of daily life from the early 1900’s. The tour includes various learning labs throughout the home that include puzzles, games, props for imaginative play, servant’s chores, and more! Families can also try our photo scavenger hunt to discover unique features of the home and to learn more about the Hormel family.
Families are welcome to visit during our regular visitor hours, Monday-Friday 10-4:30 to tour. Entry is $5 per adult. Half Pints Club Members receive free entry as well as other family friendly benefits. Please check-in with staff members upon arrival. We look forward to seeing your family soon!
Special family friendly events will be scheduled throughout the year including Soup & Santa in November.
The Hormel Historic Home offers a unique venue for kids' birthday parties. Please give us a call to discuss options.
