What is there to do?

What makes Hands-on House Children's Museum so special? Well, that one's easy! It's a place where kids can discover, play, and imagine, all whilst learning through fun and interactive exhibits.

Kids will be able to do and see things they won't find anywhere else. This fun Lancaster County museum is a great educational day out (but they won't realize it because it's too fun!)

Hands-on House Children's Museum has one simple philosophy - learning is simple, and it will last longer if it's more fun! And what's the way to make it more fun? It's all about getting the kids involved with something! Which is why all of the exhibits and programs are filled with fun interactive activities which involve both the children AND the adults!

A true family experience! 

All of the exhibits are a complete treasure trove of these shared educational experiences. Each one is custom-designed to make sure that all of the activities are PERFECT for those playful family members aged 2 to 10.

Each exhibit at Hands-on House Children's Museum has a theme, so kids can use their imagination no matter what the situation! 

It's the perfect place for adults and children to play together. 

During your time at the museum, don't miss out on Mason's Active Adventure Garden, which is a super fun outdoor exhibit which combines nature, active play, and great ways for kids to use their imagination. Fun challenges, kid-sized nooks, and play kits like a sand box and tunnel - yes please!

Enjoy your day out together!

Where is it at?


From Route 30 around Lancaster:
Take the Oregon Pike exit. Go north on Oregon Pike to the fourth traffic light. Here, make a left onto Landis Valley Road. Hands-on House is on the right, about 1.5 blocks down. We share a parking lot with Landis Valley Museum.

What a cool place to take students! They offer group visits to the museum as well as Discovery To Go outreach workshops that bring their unique hands-on learning activities to you!

Can I get one of those?


Get those pennies out because there is a small Gift Corner with items ranging in price from $2 to $15.
