About this activity

Kids - how do you feel about spending the day experimenting, creating, using their imagination, and playing? Sounds great huh!?

Parents - how do you feel about your kids spending the day learning? Even better!

Welcome to the Hands-On Children's Museum - where you get the best of BOTH worlds! The Hands-On Children's Museum is 6500 square feet of hands-on, interactive exhibits for those playful kids aged 1 to 12 years.

There are 25 major exhibits where kids can immerse themselves in the land of make believe, have a great time and really develop their senses and skills along the way! 

Nee yaw nee yaw! The sound of the fire engine must mean we are in the Fire and Emergency Rescue Station! Better put those fire fighter hats on and slide down that pole to save some people!

Time for a bit of shopping? Head on over to the supermarket with real cash registers, and conveyor belts, and even mini grocery carts! Kids can act like they really are shopping like their parents to! Kids can even be the store clerk and ring up all the groceries! It's totally interactive!

Maybe they want to play in the really cool diner, or take a ride on the train which departs from the Kids Train Depot? Those kids who LOVE to talk will love to host their own radio show for the day! Doctors can treat patients, and scientists can experiment!

Kids might even want to take to the high seas on the pirate ship!

The Hands-On Children's Museum has SO many fun realistic sets and experiences for children to enjoy. What did we tell you - playing and learning! We weren't kidding!
