Every day is a day of exploration, creativity, and adventure at Hands On, but only because you make it happen!

Leadership Circle 2022

Join or renew your Leadership Circle membership today!

When you join the Leadership Circle for $1,200, you become part of a special group of leaders who believe in the value of learning through play. You share the vision that our community deserves region-wide recognition for this cultural attraction where families can learn and play together.

How does the Leadership Circle support the Museum's Free and Reduced Admissions Program?

This elite group supports the Museum’s wide range of Free and Reduced Admission Programs, which provide access for under-served and at-risk children and families through discounted and sponsored visitation and memberships, free parenting education, family support services and much more. Hands On has one of the most robust Free and Reduced Admissions Programs of any children’s museum in the country–we serve 133,000 children, families and school groups each year–and it’s thanks in large part to the generosity of Leadership Circle members!

It costs the Museum roughly $15 to serve one individual during museum hours. Your gift of $1,200 helps dozens of children, families and elementary classes visit the Museum and participate in special support programming each year.
