  • Kids had a great time and didn’t want to leave. Cost was higher than I would expect for what they had but has potential to be made even better.

  • 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...

  • This place is amazing. I have a 10month old granddaughter and I was skeptical that there would be enough for her to do. Not only is is there plenty for all ages but the staff there are very interactive with the kids and engaged her completely. They have a cafe there that was good. The pizza was better than average and they have a case of Bassetts ice cream. The accessibility is good. I could easily navigate the museum with my scooter and easily access the bathrooms. Parking was accessible and easy to reach from the building entrance.
  • The kids definitely enjoyed themselves. I took off a star because I feel there's much more they could do with such a big building! We enjoyed the workshops they offered as well! The rocket launcher was a huge hit with everyone who went back there (not just our family). The Alice in wonderland theme was very fun! Hard to maneuver with anything outside of a umbrella stroller, but still fun!
  • 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. 👏🏻🥰
  • Great place for kids, lots of exhibits and fun areas for them to play around. Highly recommend coming early as this place closes exactly at 4:30 PM and there are few sessions like Arts class that ends by 3 which are a great way for kids to learn new skills, Carousel closes at 4:00 so which is one of the main attraction here and something you shouldn't miss. Plenty of parking space, Small cafeteria available. You need at least 2 hours to see everything. The Space, Grocery store exhibits were really good. IG: journey_man16
  • It's a wonderful place! I wish they would enforce masks throughout the building. The guard at the front door said something to my son because it wasn't over his whole nose but once you get it there were adults and children everywhere with no masks. Otherwise it was a great experience. The little grocery store area downstairs is the cutest !
