Somehow, Hands on Children's Museum has managed to fit an entire town into its 8,500-square-foot space. Servers pour pretend milkshakes at a '50s-themed cafe, tellers work at the Kids Mini Bank, and all sorts of townsfolk stock up on the essentials at the Winn-Dixie Lil' Grocery. Here, working cash registers, conveyer belts, and miniature carts give kids the feeling that they're really shopping for their families. There's even a spaceship, just like in every small American town. In total, 20 main exhibits let kids take on the roles of grownup workers or use costumes and puppets to enter a world of complete fantasy. Hands on Children's Museum also hosts special events, such as story time, face painting, and the opportunity to pet a live chicken.

The door opens and beaded Peruvian curtains clack a greeting to the arrivals. As the new diners sit, the sun, too, sits on bay windowsills and turns the orange walls a rich burnt red. Weekend live music strikes up and Pisco’s waiters erupt from the kitchen, arms lined with lime-infused ceviche and plated morsels of octopus and mussels. As three flat-screen TVs broadcast the Peruvian station and remind diners of the owners’ native roots, stir-fried chicken and steak entrees descend upon tables beside posses of plantains, roasted corn, and fresh cilantro. While sipping on sangria or lemonade, patrons can peek into the banquet room to prophesy a possible get-together or peek into a neighbor’s traditional corn drink for prophecies from the spirit of Orville Redenbacher.
