A Must Visit – Please Touch Museum

Post to Twitter .

If you live in or near Philadelphia or are going to be visiting at some point, a must visit attraction with kids is the Please Touch Museum.

It’s simply amazing.

And I’m not kidding.

We played in the river and created currents for the boats to race as well as splashed around and got wet!

Once we were done with the River Adventures, we moved on to the Roadside Attractions where the boys had a blast!

Owen was able to drive a city bus while Grandma Ellie rode as a passenger.

She was pretty brave considering Owen ran right into daddy!

Don’t worry. Daddy wasn’t hurt! He walked away from the crash unharmed.

After all that commotion we decided to relax on the Woodside Park Dentzel Carousel.

Owen wasn’t sure about it at first, but by the end he was enjoying it.  Ryan was proud to be sitting by himself without an adult near by.

There were so many other amazing attractions within the museum, including the Statue of Liberty, Flight Fantasy, Wonderland, and Centennial Exploration.

My favorite though was the City Capers area.  They had a mini grocery store were the kids could shop and then proceed to the check out with their groceries.

Owen was the shopper and he bought all of his favorite items.

Ryan was the cashier. While Owen was shopping, our cashier was a little bored.

But once Owen brought his full cart over to the check out, Ryan was busy as could be!

It really was a cute setup and so much fun for the boys.

After all the shopping we continued through City Capers and headed to McDonald’s where Ryan and Owen served Mommy, Daddy and Grandma Ellie lunch.

Jim and I were simply amazed the entire day as we walked through the museum. It doesn’t compare to any children’s museum we’ve been to before. They really did this one well! The layout was great and it flowed from attraction to attraction without being over crowded; the staff were really friendly and helpful; and the exhibits were kept up so well (and clean!!).

Thanks Grandma Ellie for a great day! We are all still talking about how much we enjoyed the day.

  1. Wow! That museum looks like so much fun! Love the picture of Ryan, bored at the register. 🙂 We need to get back to the MN Children’s Museum – we didn’t have a chance to play in the “city” section last time we were there.

  2. looks like fun. We were in a similar museum in Charleston:http://mybusychildren.com/where-to-go-with-kids-in-charleston/

  3. Omgosh—it really looks like it was un-forget-able!

  4. Seriously? These are like my pictures from the Minnesota Children’s Museum, yet reincarnated with your kids! Too funny!

I would LOVE to hear from you!
