Please Touch Museum

Please Touch Museum

Where lifelong learning begins, curiosity is encouraged and every child is always welcome.

Forget everything you know about keeping your hands to yourself at a museum and get ready for a seriously fun, seriously educational hands-on adventure at Philadelphia's Please Touch Museum.

Meant for children around age 7 and younger, the Please Touch Museum is the perfect place to take your youngsters to learn and play. This museum teaches through interaction, placing importance on what they refer to as the '4 C's' of learning: creativity, collaboration, community, and critical thinking. Through several different interactive exhibits, programs, live events, and games, your kiddos will walk out of here with a new sense of discovery, we guarantee it!

There are 2 full floors of fun here, with plenty to see and do for a couple of hours at least. Here are some permanent exhibit examples: Blocks, Healthy Me, Wonderland, River Adventures, Rocket Room, Wordsworth Cottage, and Please Touch Garden. Your children will learn about everything from basic English and storytelling to physical science and ecology! There are also over 25,000 historical games, toys, and more to show them what education and play throughout the years have been like.

Before you go grab a bite to eat at the onsite cafe, with several kid-friendly (and allergen friendly) options such as pizzas, wraps, grilled cheese, hot dogs, and the like. There is also an onsite store to visit if you would like to bring home an educational game or toy, and even a really fun carousel to take a spin on, the Woodside Park Dentzel Carousel!
