Answers to common questions about the Museum.

Exhibits and events

QWhat age range is best for visiting the Museum?

Generally, the Museum is best for children from about six months through age 8. We have created a fun learning environment for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and early elementary-age children. Slightly older children often have fun acting as “teachers” for their younger playmates.

QWith so many visitors, how can you keep your exhibit clean and safe?

All exhibit areas and props are cleaned and sanitized at the end of each day to help to eliminate the spread of germs. There are child-height sinks in the restrooms for hand washing and hand sanitizing stations mounted on the walls throughout the Museum. In addition, there are signs posted throughout the Museum to remind employees and visitors to clean their hands. Visitors are encouraged to inform a staff member if an area or object appears to need attention. Further, an accredited professional cleaning company conducts a thorough cleaning of the Museum several times a year.

Memberships and discounts

QCan I share my membership with a relative or nanny?

Yes. We provide Discover and Imagine level memberships for those that wish to include an additional adult, such as a nanny or grandparent. If you have two parents and a nanny with one child than a Discover 4 membership would be best. A named or listed card holder must be present with valid photo ID to check in.

QAre all memberships priced for families of four?

Our base prices start at the family size of four and can be expanded for $20 per child up to a family size of 6 for the Play level, and up to a family size of 8 for all upper tier membership levels.

QAre there ways to save?


Yes. From 4 to 7 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month, Museum admission is only $2 per person; children under age 1 are always free.

Please Touch Museum maintains special collections storage and workspace area with supplies, equipment, research and reference material and more to take care of all the Collections. When necessary, specialized consultants review specific objects and collections categories for conservation.
