  • We visited the Please Touch Museum on the last day of our vacation to Philadelphia this week, and I’m really glad we didn’t skip it. We were very worn out (or at least the adults were) from walking...

  • My daughter absolutely loves it here. I highly recommend trying out their little-kid-friendly art classes downstairs, their staff are amazing with kids and easily handle a big classroom while taking walk-ins as they teach. Their method for clearing out the lower level by starting a parade and handing out instruments and guiding everyone upstairs is adorable, genius and hilarious. There is SO much to do and see, and the updates work really well. Love love love it. Worth every penny of our membership. 👏🏻🥰
  • I recently took my two year old granddaughter to the Please Touch Museum for a rainy afternoon and I had as much fun as my granddaughter in the grocery store and Alice in Wonderland exhibits. The Alice exhibit was my favorite because it is one of my favorite children's books, but the grocery store was so much fun for my little Una who loved shopping, prepping food, ringing up groceries on the scanner, and learning about nutrition. IT'S PERFECT FOR CHILDREN OF ALL AGES AND A GOOD RAINY DAY ACTIVITY.
