420x280_Medium_Experience.pngThe experience of the Please Touch Museum is

  • It’s all about discovering: Your children’s curiosity will be unleashed and they will create their own experiences during each and every visit.
  • It’s all about learning: We turn your children’s questions of “why?” and “how?” into exclamations of “WOW!”
  • It’s all about playing: You will have an extraordinary family experience that is fun and safe.

Tips for your visit

  • If you can, put aside your cell phones, tablets and web-surfing watches. Focus on your children.
  • Ask your children open-ended questions about what they are doing.
  • Allow your child to make decisions about which exhibits to visit and how long to stay there.
  • Focus on process, not product. Pay attention to the learning experience, not any items that are created.
