    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Please Touch Museum facet_type_id: 1a72a1e0-5f2d-1032-bc5b-9fd449d78cb7 html_text: |- 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.

  • Philadelphia Zoo
    America’s first zoo is now also home to America’s first animal highway system. The Zoo360 system at Philadelphia Zoo features a series of elevated trails that link similar habitats and allow lions, orangutans, and blue-eyed lemurs to roam from one to another. The trails work on a timeshare system so predator and prey don’t end up in the same area at the same time.

  • Run America for Thriller Run
    November 30 is an important day in American history?a day when, every year, people take to the streets and dance like zombies.?It's a tradition that began on that same date in 1982, when Michael Jackson released his iconic Thriller LP, prompting fans to celebrate each anniversary with flashmob dances inspired by the iconic video for the title track.? Thriller Run expands these King of Pop-themed festivities by adding a race to the mix.?Just going to the starting point's kiosk is a spooky yet campy experience. As athletes sign up for race waves, they mingle with zombies, dancing ghosts, and normal-looking people who could very well be werewolves. Then, after warming up to beats from local DJs, they're off and running to the tunes of Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5, with an inevitable flash mob later in the day.
