Please Touch Museum invites children of all ages to interact with imaginary worlds.

All exhibits and displays are kid friendly and made to be touched. Be sure to enjoy the Woodside Park carousel from 1908 that's been rebuilt in the museum.

  • Almost all items are really old, nothing is working properly. Doesn’t have any relation to museum.please don’t waste your time and money. You can make music instruments from a scrach!!! Scrach!!! Grea...  more »
  • Our 4.5 year old loved everything, especially the open- ended activities, and was in constant happy motion. The restored 1876 building is grand, and this is not an old style ‘push the button and watch...  more »
  • This is a repeat visit to this museum. A great place to explore and play. On this occasion, the entire Philly area had the same idea though. Give this place time and let your littles really experience...  more »

  • My girlfriend and I took her 6-year-old daughter here and she had an absolute blast. There are tons of fun activities for kids and adults to check out together, plus lots of informative and educational exhibits to get those young minds turning. We had so much fun and will definitely be back!
  • What a great way to spend the day with the kids. The place is huge, with more than 20 big, interactive place spaces with themes that range from construction to waterways to healthcare. Our 2 and 4 year old daughters absolutely loved it. If you have little ones and you’re within driving distance you should definitely make the trip. Note that there’s tons of free street parking right in front of the building.
  • Great museum for kids and adults alike. We brought our granddaughter and grandson here during the holidays and both had a great time. The museum is never packed to the brim so to speak so it gives an opportunity to actually enjoy it. We will be returning next weekend. I'm not giving it 5 stars because the food options are very limited.
  • Awesome place, my kids loved it and can't wait to go back! Price is reasonable and free street parking all around the museum. Cafe is a little pricey but you can pack your own lunch.
  • I remember coming here when I was a kid and now as a parent I love bringing my children here (both under 6). There's a wide range of hands on activities that young kids can enjoy including a kid-sized grocery store, a large water table, and a beautiful carousel. The food court also has a number of nice selections. The food court's a little pricey but no more than any amusement park. All in all it's a great way to spend a day with kids.
