Be Spontaneous!

The best way to enjoy Please Touch Museum is to let your children spontaneously follow their curiosity while they lead you from this exhibit to that activity. Here are some helpful hints to fully enjoy your visit.

  • Try to ignore your smart phone. Every exhibit is designed for learning while playing, and that means you, too.
  • Take a map but let your children take the lead. The open-endedness of our exhibits is designed with active learners in mind. There is no “right” way to tour the Museum.
  • Think about open-ended questions to ask your children. What is happening? What would happen if….? What did you enjoy the most today?
