At Hands On! International Conferences, innovation meets inspiration. Hands On! has organized conferences since 1996 – every two years, we (co-)host a special event at which we explore the latest developments in the field of children’s education in museums, children’s museums, and science centres. Join us on a transformative journey of knowledge exchange and networking, as we bring together thought leaders, experts, and enthusiasts from around the globe.

Our conference is a dynamic platform that fosters insightful discussions, cutting-edge workshops, and meaningful connections, all aimed at driving positive change in diverse fields. Whether you’re an industry veteran or a curious mind, this is your opportunity to engage with the latest trends, share your insights, and collaborate towards a brighter future. Discover new horizons, amplify your expertise, and be a part of the vibrant tapestry of ideas at Hands On International Conferences.
