Where can you build an imaginary world every day? Create objects like animals, rocket ships or robots? In Please Touch Museum's fantastic new exhibit, "Imagination Playground." Visitors can spend hours re-configuring and designing in a magnificent world of giant foam blocks. Developed by the award winning architect David Rockwell, "Imagination Playground" is a breakthrough concept that encourages unstructured play. The life size components overflow with creative potential and provide the kind of play critical to a child's intellectual, social, physical and emotional development.
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.
