Join us in Creating the Future of Play.
For generations, children have walked through the doors of Please Touch Museum and into a magical world where they discover the joy of learning through play.
While our doors remain closed into 2021 to protect public health, our vision of a world where all children are creative, compassionate, confident, and curious, endures. Our commitment to serving children and families persists. And our belief that play is the most important work of childhood prevails.
But to ensure this future for Please Touch Museum, we need your help.
We’re already at work.
We’re proud to announce “Creating the Future of Play,” a $5 million campaign to recover lost revenue during our extended closure and to provide a runway to reimagine how we serve the children and families of this region. Incredible promise often emerges from the greatest of challenges – we are already hard at work in creating new, immersive ways for children to learn through play.
