Please Touch Museum
From a re-creation of Lewis Carroll's Wonderland to child-size versions of hospitals and grocery stores, Please Touch Museum seems like it emerged right from a child's imagination. Rightfully so, since the museum caters to families with children. For over three decades, the museum has helped kids (and their parents) expand their minds through playful exhibits and activities.
- Size: Two floors of interactive exhibits
- Eye Catcher: A 40-foot replica of the Statue of Liberty's torch made from colorful objects such as toys and a baseball bat
- Crown Jewel: Centennial Exploration, which houses some of the inventions shown during the 1876 Centennial Exhibition as well as a 20'x30' model of the 1876 Exhibition grounds
- Don't Miss: A trip around the more than century-old restored carousel (not included in admission)
- Hands-On Activities: Play musical instruments, race miniature sailboats, or build and launch foam rockets
- Special Programs: Art workshops; performances in the Playhouse Theater
- Pro Tip: A few areas are set aside for toddlers ages 3 and under
Elmwood Park Zoo
It all started with a farmer's generosity. In 1924, a civic-minded citizen handed over 16 acres of lush farmland and a small group of critters to the Borough of Norristown. Today, the Norristown Zoological Society welcomes guests to Elmwood Park Zoo in hopes of creating a future stock of wildlife lovers and conservation advocates.
- Size: A menagerie of over 100 species primarily indigenous to the Americas—including jaguars, howler monkeys, timberwolves, and eagles both bald and gold—and more than 15 species that are threatened or endangered
- Don't Miss: Amazing creatures from other continents, such as the giraffes that retrieve lost frisbees from the rooftops
- Hands-On Activities: Be one with nature's winged creatures at the "Birds of Paradise" interactive sun conure exhibit or experience feeding live bison (not included in admission)
- Special Events: Boo at the Zoo, a series of trick-or-treat stations and themed attractions that take place every weekend through October 26 from noon to 3 p.m.
