Serving all communities

Please Touch Museum provides multi-generational play and learning opportunities to children of diverse backgrounds, and especially those living in underserved communities and with special needs. Investing the museum’s resources in our community is an effective way to promote our mission of learning through play. Programs are designed to be multi-generational, cross-curricular and consistent with state learning standards. We help break down barriers, both real and perceived, and we encourage non-traditional museum audiences to use us as a resource.

  • External Play brings the Please Touch Museum experience into the community.
  • School Readiness supports and celebrates children and families who are transitioning into kindergarten.
  • Youth and Family programs mentor teens and empower parents and caregivers.
