Summer Splash! Gala 2023

This is a 21+ Event. 

We can’t wait to party under the twinkle lights with you on Friday, August 25, 2023. It will be a fabulous night of friends and the community coming together to support Hands On. Help us raise funds for our free and reduced Access Programs – ensuring that all children can learn and play at the Museum. Space is limited. For tickets and information, please call Jasmine Olson at (360) 956-0818 ext. 151 or email

At Hands On there are more than 30 Access programs specifically designed to help underserved children experience the educational magic of the Museum. Over one-third of all Museum visitors receive free or reduced-fee admission. That’s over 100,000 visitors a year! Your gift will help fund First Friday Night, sponsored admissions and memberships for families in need, discounts for military families, field trips and curiosity kits for rural and Title 1 schools, and numerous parent/child classes and support programs.

Can’t attend the event, but want to participate?

We will be holding an online silent auction where you can bid on exciting auction packages or make a donation. More information soon!


We offer a summer filled with themed adventures, visiting artists, animal encounters, and more! Check out the Summer Splash! Festival of Fun
