Exhibits and events
AGenerally, 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.
AAll 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
AYes. 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.
AOur 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.
ASince opening in 1976, Please Touch Museum began collecting objects for exhibits and programs. Many of these items were donated by staff, visitors and friends of the Museum. Others were purchased at stores, auctions, flea markets and garage sales.
APlease 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.
