Philadelphia with the Kids: Please Touch Museum

April 15, 2013 by


The first of it’s kind, the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is a must visit play haven for the kids. It opened in 1976 and has been providing children with curiosity inducing, mind enriching, and excitement causing activities ever since. They’ve been nationally recognized for their expertise in creating fun.

Please Touch has 8 different ongoing exhibits and each one offers a unique hands on experience for the little ones. Kids are encouraged to touch, explore, play and imagine freely.

They’ll learn about nature, weather, and science in the River Adventures exhibit, or about architecture, grocery stores, and medical professions inside the City Capers exhibit. They can even make their own music in the Rainforest Rhythms exhibit with conga drums and rain sticks.

The museum also offers live theatre shows, art making activities, musical and dance performances, daily story telling, and a refurbished carousel. Chances are, the kids won’t want to leave this place!

The Please Touch Museum is located in Fairmount Park, and is open seven days a week. To avoid crowds, visit in the afternoons on fair weather days. Admission costs $16 and children under 1 are free.

For more information on upcoming events at the museum, or to purchase tickets in advance, visit their website
