Don't forget the Adult Swim nights. Just a few times a year the museum opens in the evening for an event which allows adults to visit the museum without their children. Adult beverages are served (maybe to help bring out the child in us) and we are allowed, encouraged even, to play with the kids' toys. These events are themed in a way that encourages the child in us to explore some aspect of the natural, and sometimes, unnatural world.The Adult Swims are often sold-out so buying the $20.00 tickets in advance, on-line, is the best way to go (pun intended).

This place is amazing, we've been a few times with our toddler and even after a few hours we have to drag her out of there. All the areas are very well maintained, and the outdoor play space is constantly being improved, and modified. Highly recommend it!

I recently went to the Hands On Children's Museum with my son's Kindergarten class as a chaperone, and he had a blast! I tried to show him as much as I could, but he got fixated on what he wanted to do so I just went with it. My daughter and her friend have gone there quite often--probably 8 or 10 times--and they don't get tried of it. They are open 7 days a week, and the weekends can understandably get pretty busy. There are Members Only hours on Monday and Saturday mornings. Membership pays for itself in a few visits. First Friday night of the month, it's free from 5 PM to 9 PM, so you can try before you buy.

We've been to a lot of these museums over the years. This one is hands down the best for a number of reasons. There are a wide variety of themes, from emergency vehicles to water canons that shoot balls tens of feet into the air. Another key differentiator is the cleanliness of the place. The staff monitors the toys that get chewed on and keeps busy constantly cleaning up after the waves of kids as they progress through the museum.

It took us three years to finally check this place our. The kids love it. We bought a family pass, the water features and grocery areas are the kids favorite.

Such a great place to take children! Lots to do in a huge newly-renovated area, a great cafe and gift shop. They also ofter preschool classes, which is really fun for kids, and the teachers there are excellent (we love Miss Betsy!)

I think you may have mistaken us for the Hands On Children's Museum in Jacksonville, FL. We are separate and independent of the museum in Jacksonville, Florida.

Our facility and programs welcome all families and our membership packages support foster families, grandparents, single parent households, and two-adult households of any type.

Please learn more about us and our programs at www.hocm.org.

I'll never take my grand-kids here. I teach them to fight bigotry in all of its forms.
