  • The HCM is fun for all ages (but would be weird if you don't have a kid with you), bring some imagination and a smile. You will have fun along with kids!  more »

  • What a great place to entertain my 5.5 year old son! He would not lose interest for hours and hours! Great exhibit, very organized and neat, and the variety of activities is just overwhelming! My son wanted to visit this museum after watching a video of it on YouTube, and the experience did surpass his expectations, he loved it. Highly recommend it for children and adults young-at-heart.
  • My daughter loves this place. Huge building. 2 floors with a slide that goes down to the first floor. Easy for kids to get separated. There's even an outside area. They also have birthday parties. Expect to spend all day here.
  • My children love the Hand's On Children's Museum. Many fun things to explore allowing their creativity to flow. Awesome customer service. The gift shop is cute with reasonably priced items. It does get a little busy and overstimulating at times but that's expected with how many people enjoy visiting the museum.
  • Such a fun and educational place. We crawled to the eagles nest through a bees nest from a stream down below. What a wonderful adventure for the whole family. They even have adults only nights where beer is consumed awesome right? Great job hocm
  • This is an amazing place for kids of all backgrounds in all cultures and all economic standings. I like with this organization does to offer scholarships for low income families. This organization is definitely one of the best your development hands-on place I have ever seen.
