Hands On! Conferences

Meet and exchange ideas with professionals and experts from all over the world!

Every two years, Hands On! organizes Europe’s only children-dedicated museum conference in order to  explore the latest developments in the field of children’s education in museums, children’s museums and science centers. We aim to learn from and be inspired by keynote speakers, workshops and exclusive museum visits. In Cooperation with the European Museum Academy, the annual Children in Museums Award is also be presented during our conferences.

Our conferences are hosted by our members around the world. For more information on hosting a Hands On! conference please read our conference guide  and contact our office.






`I admit, this is the best conference I have ever been to, because the quality of lectures was very good and the format of the conference – perfect.`
