Please Touch Museum is a fun and educational museum for children seven years old and younger. The museum is located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, and centers on the use of interactive exhibits and special events in teaching children.

Since 1976, Please Touch Museum has been encouraging children to play and grow through the myriad totally hands-on experiences they offer - from the fantastic to the practical. The museum's Alice?s Adventures in Wonderland allows kids to play croquet with the Queen and sip tea with the Mad Hatter. Kids can take the wheel of a real bus and sail a boat on a mini-Delaware River. Kids aged 3 and under can discover animals nestled among high grass and a lily pond in ?Nature?s Pond,? or enjoy stories and nursery rhymes in ?Fairytale Garden.? Original and interactive theater performance by the Please Touch Playhouse can be seen daily. The play "Please Touch" provides young children their first live theater experience.

Originally built in Philadelphia and kept in storage for 40 years, the 1908 Woodside Park Dentzel Carousel returned to its hometown in its own 9,000 square-foot glass pavilion on the east side of Memorial Hall for both kids and grown-ups to enjoy.

Over three decades, the Please Touch Museum has grown into one of the nation's best children's museum with its aim of enriching the lives of children by creating learning opportunities through the fun way.
