“daughter asks to go to Hands On! every time we visit Hendersonville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

My daughter is 12 and still loves Hands On! She loves everything - the veterinarian, the bakery, the art center, the grocery store, etc.. She was incredibly excited from our last visit because the grocery store now has a scanner. Great place for kids and only $5 per person. We love Hands On!

“We spent hours!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

I think we tried everything. Highlights were making Lego cars to send down a track, playing grocery store including scanning and working the cash register, and acting on a theater stage. Any place where a 4 yr old is entertained for hours is amazing.

“Hands Together for Hands On!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

My daughter (aged 7) played with grocery items, rang up a list, played dentist in the dentist chair and had a blast with the trains. This place is amazing and educational! The dress up costumes are the BEST!!!

“Great place for kids....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

My two and a half year old and my friend's 3 year old had a blast. In addition, our husbands had a blast playing in the lego race track area! There are a lot of different areas for kids to play in.....an art area, giant building blocks, grocery store area, vet office, ice cream shop, baby-doll area, boat, and stage with clothes.

Hands on is a not for profit business and costs $5 per person (ages 1 and up).
