Very nicely done museum/play place for smaller kids (ages 1 up to about 8yrs). Spacious and lots of different themes. Our 18mos old had a great time and benefited more than at the typical children's museum. Lots of interesting, educational fun for older kids, too. Kids above 3rd grade or so may not find quite as much fun as smaller... More

great for younger kids - my 3 and 5 year old loved it and my 7 year old liked it but I think in a year or so she will be a bit too old (but too young to get a kick out of the late 1970's star wars figures which I got a kick out of). it started to... More

Mastered a variety of every day things kids are not to touch and allow them to do so. My husband drives a transit bus. My G-kids flipped when they got to pretend drive the same type of bus their pop drives. Very nice family place.

While visiting Philly last week for a wedding, we took the young ‘uns amongst us to the Please Touch Museum for the day. What a lovely experience – for the adults and children. That place is gorgeous! And filled to the brim with enjoyable activities for kids 1-1/2 to 7, I’d say. The kids in our extended family loved the... More

It is a very nice facility for children to spend a couple of hours going from room to room and exhibit to exhibit and having lots of fun and activity along the way! A lot more fun for everyone if you happen to luck out and not visit during a very busy day.

This is a great attraction for kids, parents, and Grand Parents with the kids. Boys and girls will love all the inter active hands on learning experiences. Kids are free to be kids run, jump, touch and feel all the exhibits. I would suggest that it is best for kids under 14.( tweens may get bored ). Parents you mat... More

Our family visited the Please Touch Museum this winter. I'll have to say, we might not have visited if we didn't have free tickets (see below). At >15$ a ticket a family of 5 really has to dig deep in their pockets. But after visitng, now I believe the price is truly justified! There is so much to see and... More

Young children will enjoy exploring the many exhibits at the Please Touch Museum. The supermarket experience was fun for adults, too. All the exhibits were great.

While my grand kids traipse off to play in the"hospital" or "grocery store" I like to join the mad hatter at Alice's tea party. I'm the lady with white hair, silly hat and big smile.
