Spring Celebration


It’s been a chilly winter so Please Touch Museum has been looking forward to spring! Celebrate the coming of a new season with musical performances, visits from beloved character the Very Hungry Caterpillar, kite & butterfly making and a host of programming that will get everyone excited about warmer days.

In the program room, kids will be able to create their own kite, paper butterflies and a seed ball! Don’t miss the Spring-y Science fun exploring different kinds of springs and how they’re used and more!

Spring Celebration Highlights:

They’re your favorite kids band you haven’t heard yet! Mixing funk, folk, mo-town, do-wop, rock and more. The Plants offer everyone a truly great musical experience!
