Please Touch Museum Review & Giveaway @pleasetouch

Party of 5 recently had the opportunity to attend a Blogger Event at The Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

We have never been to the Please Touch Museum before and we were really excited.

About Please Touch Museum

Since 1976, Please Touch Museum has been the Children’s Museum of Philadelphia. Our museum was the first in the nation whose target audience was families with children seven and younger. We have grown into one of the best children’s museums in the nation, have become experts in play and have had our programs for under served families in the region nationally recognized. Our mission to enrich the lives of children by creating learning opportunities through play, enables us to lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning and cultural awareness.

I LOVED the fact that my kids could touch naything they wanted without me saying " hey dont touch that"
The Please Touch Musesum is set up in different areas for kids to enjoy. Our favorites were Alice in Wonderland, River Adventures and Final Fantasy.
Our first stop was the Carousel. My kids love love love the carousel and could ride it all day!
Originally operating at Woodside Park—a favorite West Philadelphia amusement park located less than 10 blocks from Memorial Hall—the Woodside Park Dentzel Carousel was built by the Dentzel Carousel Company of the Germantown section of Philadelphia. While the carousel debuted at Woodside Park in 1924, many of the animals on the carousel are much older, dating back to 1908

 We then headed out on our own and discovered so many fun and exciting hands on things for the kids to do.

At River adventures we  the kids got to play in the water and race sailboats! They had a blast here!

The kids could have stayed here all day if we let them!
