Please Touch Museuam is dedicated to educating our children through play and various other learning experiences. The new location at Memorial Hall opened in October, 2008, and for the past two years, over 500,000 visitors each year have been amazed with the transformation of what was originally built as the original Phila. Art Museum during the Centennial back in 1876 to what is now one of the most highly recognized Children's Museums in the U.S., and perhahps the World. Children and adults visit the Museum via daily admission fees or annual memberships, but to make sure that the audience of potential visitors is expanded, the Musueam offers free admission to young children attending Philadelphia schools, as well as partnering with certain of the PTM sponsors to offer discounted admissions. The phenomenal staff is trained to ensure that each child's visit is fun AND educational. There is so much to do that it is practically impossible to cover the entire museum in one visit, plus the various activities are so enjoyable, the children really enjoy participating in the various offerings time and time again. Finally, let's not forget about the adults--the feeling of providing such a rewarding set of varied experiences for one's children is probably enough, however, in addition, the adults attending will be amazed at the preservation and restoration of the 1876 facility, plus will be fascinated with the large replica of the Centennial (also known as the 1876 World's Fair) on the first floor of the Museum. A fantastic family activity!!

PTM is not only a wonderful place for families to create "memorable moments" together, it also is truly a place for childrent to be in control and to exercise their creative, inquisitive sides to the fullest extent. Just about everything is self directed and non structured to encourage exploration at their own pace. In addition, the Museum has an amazing number of comunity outreach programs to attempt to make its resources available to all Philadelphia area children, especially those at risk in the community.
