Children can play with nature-inspired instruments and embark on a jungle adventure, complete with wild, if inanimate, animals. Learn about the music of nature, and the effects of the latter on the former.
Specially designed by local artist Leo Sewell, Please Touch Museum honors the Statue of Liberty Arm and Torch that was originally displayed at the 1876 Centennial Exhibition as a fundraiser campaign for the pedestal that now holds the full statue in New York harbor. This special replica stands 40-feet high and is made entirely of discarded playthings.
Take a ride on Please Touch Museum's fully refurbished carousel. This iconic carousel, originally located in Woodside Park, Philadelphia, was crafted in 1908 by the Dentzel Carousel Company of Philadelphia, and after more than 40 years in storage, returns to its hometown bringing joy to new generations.
Children can explore familiar buildings and locales from the "Curious George" books and television series in this fun exhibit. "Curious George: Let's Get Curious" focuses on key concepts in science, math, and engineering, as well as fun activities that invite children to learn through direct experience and problem solving.
