Pisgah Forest Gem Mine Hendersonville NC

Exciting things are happening all around Hendersonville North Carolina, and becoming a kid-friendly place is a top priority. When you look at other places around Western NC, including Asheville, there is not much to do for kids. But take a simple walk down Main Street in Downtown Hendersonville and watch their little eyes light up!

You have Hands On which is a fun experience where you can take the kids for exhibits, classes, and events. Then you have the Mineral & Lapidary Museum where you can get a sort of science tour of raw minerals from the earth, polished gemstones, and other finished products. Then last but not least, you have the ECCO Aquarium where you can see about 24 exhibits and tanks featuring turtles, sharks, lizards and more. And let’s not forget the Dancing Bear, which is one of the best toy stores we have ever been in. But beware, kids are known to get stuck in there.
