The Hand’s on House, in Lancaster, is geared for kids under the age of 10 and encourages interactive play with their family. Feel free to wander around the different stations, or drop in for the occasional extra-fun event. The museum has many scenarios that you might play at home, but they also have all the fun toys and accessories that are just “make believe” in your house. Your children can sort mail in the post office, create machines in a factory, go grocery shopping, and much more. There’s no eating facility, so plan a packed lunch or get your hand stamped to grab a bite to eat nearby at the Olde Hickory Grill or Uncommon Pizza.
As for the lovely accommodations, the Adamstown Inns has two smaller cottages for families, and one vacation home for several, or extended families. All homes have central living/dining areas, kitchens, and access to a shared hot tub. You can save money by booking a special, sharing it with friends, or even by preparing meals in your home away from home. It’s the perfect location to begin you family adventures.
