Hands-on House Children's Museum

There's so much to explore at the area's only museum for young children where playing and learning go hand-in-hand. Not-for-profit museum focuses on shared educational experiences that delight kids and parents alike.

Little Valley Farm
The imaginative play exhibit, designed to teach children ages 2-7 about the connection between farms and food in a fun way, will include play farm animals, a barn, silo, hayloft, farm machinery and tractor. Children will be able to collect and sort free-range play eggs in a hen house, pick pretend apples off a tree, climb aboard a real tractor, feed and care for play farm animals, discover what it takes to milk a dairy cow, and use a pulley system in a two-story hayloft where they can learn about the difference between straw and hay.
