What is there to do?

It's hands-on fun for kids in an interactive museum JUST for them!

Hands-On! Children's Museum in Hendersonville is filled with exhibits and activities for kids to enjoy that ensure their day is filled with learning, developing and so much more!

There are 12 exhibits in total, focusing on a range of topics including science, nature, math, engineering, health and more. All of these exhibits are aimed for kids up to 10 years, so no matter what their interest or what stage in their development they are, there will be something for them!

Kids can express themselves in the Art & Sensory Studio, a unique space where kids can grab a smock and easel and paint until their heart's content!

A great all weather option for families featuring an 850 sq. ft. Mountain terrain play area with physical and science discovery play equipment with yes, a mountain AND a waterfall inside the museum! Kids will love the many rocks and minerals hidden throughout the exhibit for them to find!

Kids can use their natural curiosity and imagination in the Nature Nook, or help the post master sort and deliver the mail. 

Imagination Playground allows kids to create forts, towns and even a horse to ride, or kids can even pretend to be "parents" by taking care of babies! (don't worry parents, they are only dolls!)

If THAT wasn't enough, kids can dress up and look after the animals in the Vet Hospital, or race LEGO cars with friends. 

There's shopping at the grocery store, theater fun with puppets, or they can show their creativity with large, glowing images!

Can you imagine having THAT much fun in one day? It's all happening at the Hands-On! Children's Museum in Hendersonville.
