Please Touch Museum

4231 Ave of the Republic (formerly N Concourse Dr) , Philadelphia, 19131, PA

All weekend long, our child wanted to visit the Please Touch Museum, which caters to children from toddlers to age 7. He had a blast walking through the Alice in Wonderland maze, repairing cars, riding the carousel, and “shopping” at the kids’ toy grocery store. The museum opened in its new location, 4231 Avenue of the Republic in Fairmount Park, in October 2008.

It’s a great museum for children. They even have a cafeteria on site, which is good because the museum is located in a park. Plan to spend at least three hours here. Children have a hard time leaving. You can overhear many parents give their kids the 10-minute warning. We had to start with a 30-minute warning and work our way down.

The museum is open seven days a week and admission is $15 per person; children under 1 are free. Other parents we met here suggested getting a family membership if you live nearby because your kids will want to come again and again. There is on-site parking. Parking is $5 per car.

My 3 year old absolutely loved this place. Make sure you arrive early as we only arrived at 3.30pm and were charged $57 for 90 minutes of play. An adult discount would not go astray.
