Hands on Museum is without a doubt the best option for you to take your family to in Johnson City. They are always changing so you can return.

Such a fun and cute little hands on museum located right downtown. My two-year-old and I had a wonderful time, we played for a couple of hours. Lots of different activities on two floors. Definitely recommend this place. We drove from Asheville. Five stars!
