My 2 year old LOVED this place- was able to go on a weekday which was awesome. Loved the special Daniel Tiger exhibit and meeting DT himself. He still talks about it 2 months later. This will be an annual trip for us until he outgrows it!

We went to the area to visit Sesame Place. We bought a Groupon deal for the museum as well based on the reviews. We found it to be okay, but not worth the price even with Groupon. The carousel wasn't in operation so the free ride tickets we got were useless. The employees were all very friendly, though. For less than ten dollars a ticket, maybe. Anything more than that, nah.

I was a little disappointed. I am used to children being all over the place and things thrown about but this was another level. Many of the attractions were closed due to maintenance and most of the toys were in need of repair. The only good part about the museum was the grocery store. That is where we spent the most time. The staff were nice but the exhibits were just ok. Would not drive 2 hours for it again but some parts were fun.

About Please Touch Museum

"Don't touch that." The founders behind Please Touch Museum knew kids were used to hearing this phrase—and they wanted to change things. In 1976, they opened a museum dedicated to families with children aged seven and younger. The concept? That interactive exhibits and hands-on interaction would let kids learn through play.

  • Size: Two floors with 156,000 square feet of exhibits were designed for open-ended exploration.
  • Eye Catcher: The 40-foot replica of the Statue of Liberty’s Arm and Torch, is made from toys and found objects.
  • Permanent Mainstay: The Woodside Park Dentzel Carousel, which was built in 1908, is still operating today.
  • Don't Miss: The toy collection, which encompasses more than 25,000 board games, action figures, and other fun items manufactured after 1945, is a must-see for kids and adults.
  • Hands-On Activities: Kids pretend to sell tickets to the World's Fair and play doctor at the City Capers exhibit.
  • The Building: The museum occupies the entirety of Memorial Hall, which was built in 1876, long before children even existed.
  • Special Programs: Performances of music, puppetry, and other arts take the stage at the Playhouse Theatre.
  • Before You Go: Stop by the Kids Shop, which is stocked with toys designed to help children learn through play, plus children's books and Memorial Hall memorabilia.
