  • We bought a annual membership and took the kids a few times. They loved it! It is just as I remembered as a child. The grocery store was my favorite when I was young, and my kids loved it too. Sure, t...  more »
  • This place has been built with good intentions but needs some work. We enjoyed the two times that we visited (about one year apart). However, some of the exhibits do not work. There are some stations ...  more »
  • We visit Hands on about every 3 months. The kids love every exhibit. The bank is a favorite for all the kids. So many different things they are entertained for hours. Take your kids here. Affordable.  more »

  • What an amazing place that has been a landmark in town for years. So thankful it's been around long enough for me to bring my own kids to the same place I had field trips at as a kid. Interactive, fun, and continuing to update. Great spot for kids birthday parties too.
  • This place is great! I bring my 3 yo here twice a month. Manageable size place and the staff is super nice! Get a year pass if you're local!
  • Have come to this place ever since I was a kid, but it was in a sad state of disrepair today. Downstairs was so slick from bubble stuff as to be dangerous. No fossils in the fossil dig. Neither bubble enclosure worked, only 1 boat lock worked. Missing pieces everywhere. Not worth the $35 we paid today. Hope this isn't its typical state these days. We really liked the Make it and Take it craft exhibit. How fun to have virtually unlimited crafty supplies to let the imagination do its thing!
  • Lady at the front desk was really depressing. No smile and just meh. Kind of outdated and dirty. Fun for children.
  • Great! Kids loved it. Plan on getting Krispy Kream donuts nearby afterwards.
