Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Please Touch Museum®

Please Touch Museum®

Created for kids seven and younger, Please Touch Museum® also appeals to a more mature crowd because of the building’s history. A National Historic Landmark located in Fairmount Park, Memorial Hall was built for the nation’s 1876 Centennial Exhibition. The striking building houses some serious fun and play (and learning, of course).
