Help Us Provide Play for All!
Your support allows Please Touch Museum to welcome all children and families, regardless of their socioeconomic status, fulfilling our vision of a world where all children are creative, compassionate, confident, and curious and helping us continue our work as a vital community resource and carrying our mission to change a child’s life as they discover the power of learning through play.
Play is not a distraction from serious learning, but an integral part of it. In 1976, the Please Touch Museum opened its doors, becoming the first museum in our region with a focus on young children and their families. It is because of your generosity that these first Museum experiences can continue for generations to come. Make a contribution today!
We’ve been busy.
Incredible promise often emerges from the greatest of challenges – we are creating new, immersive ways for children to learn through play. Please join us by making a contribution to ensure Play for All today!
