The Please Touch Museum is located in the Exhibition Hall for the 1876 World's Fair and the building itself is fascinating with its history and the information about the World's Fair to celebrate America's Centennial. For kids, they will have a great time exploring the water area, the rocket area where you can build and launch your own rockets and the Alice in Wonderland exploration area. The building is big, so it didn't feel cramped like other kid's museums that I've been too. My 4 year old son, enjoyed getting to build his own car and looking at the train display in the basement. There was a lot of chances for him to do free play, although at times, he seemed a bit overwhelmed by all of the activities that he could do. As an adult, I enjoyed that they did have some older toys, some of which I remember having myself (the Star Wars toys from the 70s and 80s). We were able to do anything in the museum in about 2 to 3 hours, so you can fit in another activity in the day if you are trying to get a lot done in Philly. It is definitely worth a visit if you have children and want them to have some free time to explore and burn out some energy.
