What is there to do?

The Please Touch Museum is a great way for the whole family to get out and have a fun and interactive time, all the while learning and developing skills!

Do you ever get bored of those museums surrounded by "Please Don't Touch" signs? Well, it's nice to find something refreshing...and it happens to be in Pennsylvania!

Located in the Memorial Hall, the museum is perfect for those under 7s, as they make their way round the various exhibits, each with something different to teach them.

If you have some smaller curious minds, there are even specific toddler areas around the museum too!

With two whole floors of exhibits, all interactive, it's a great place for children to just get lost in their own imagination! For those little architects and future city planners, City Capers is what will draw you in! This exhibit gives children a realistic environment of the Philadelphia skyline, as well as a children's hospital, and even a construction zone. 

Calling all explorers - River Adventures are waiting for you! Did you ever think you would take a journey down a river in a museum? You can at Please Touch Museum! Here kids can explore nature, weather, and science. They can even race sailboats and play with rainbows! Sounds pretty incredible! 

If children LOVE getting lost in a book, then Wonderland might be their place, where they can immerse themselves in the wonder of imagination and leave the real world behind! Curiouser and curiouser indeed!

Please Touch Museum has been completely designed with children in mind, so you know their imaginations will run wild as they experience all there is to see!

Amazing fun indeed!
