Mt. Hands On! is an 850 square-foot mountain and waterfall inside our museum! Grab a friend and "hike" your way to the very top of the moutain; then go down the slide to make your way down. Use your muscles to pump water inside the basin of the waterfall. There are also many rocks and minerals hidden thoughout Mt. Hands On! for you to find!

Mt. Hands On! was inspired by the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina.
