    We stopped in at the Hands on! gallery during the Apple Festival. The busy crowds were a bit much for our younger children. My sister and her family (3 and 5 year old) and our family (14yo, 12yo, 10yo...  more »

    For the price you pay and the simple fact that it is non-profit its a pretty nice place. My daughter especially enjoyed the "grocery store" they had where she could shop, pay for, and ring up groceries. They have a lot to do but it is a LOT smaller then I imagined. It is all one floor with several different areas. My kids are 18 months and almost 4 and they had a good time. Pros: As described, several different play areas Nice for all ages Primarily clean (could have done better on the restrooms) Good price Non-profit Cons: Small On the main strip so parking is..... minimal One really big con for me was that they don't monitor the areas so kids were, for example, taking 5 dolls at a time and putting them into the wrong area so other kids did not have a chance to play with them. Or taking the shopping carts out of the shopping area and running a muck with them. I understand this is not the museums fault, its crappy parenting honestly, but the volunteers could do a little better to walk around make sure things are tidy / in the correct play area. Overall, would recommend and will probably return in the future.

    My son loves it here, the staff is friendly as well. Lots of places to sit and for the kids to do. It's worth the $5 all day play. You can come and go without having to repay to come back.

    Just the right size of children's museum - this cozy space still has it all! From a mini-grocery store, to a stage with costumes, a puppet-show space, a builders space, ice cream shoppe, baby doll area, block car ramp, art space, sensory activities, kalidescopes, and a giant, indoor treehouse/slide. They also offer maker events, and spaces for birthday parties. We adore coming here - the staff are excellent. Learning takes place throughout the day - and the kids will love every minute. HIghly, highly recommended.

    Our grandson loves Hands On. He can play for hours and never get board. The staff are wonderful in how they interact with the children.
