This engaging museum caters to children 1 until 6 . There are wonderful hands on activities-waterworks and so forth. There werer one or two special exhibits for older children (until 8) My younger grandchildren loved their experience there.

I think the please touch museum has many awesome things for the kids to do and is visually wonderful. I do think that once kids reach a certain age it kinda loses the appeal and doesn’t seem fun to them any longer. My 2 year...More

Great fun for the younger crowd. They have so many hands-on things to do. I enjoyed seeing them have a great time while learning. No nap time problems after you leave. Peace and Blessings/

This place is magnificent for toddlers. I've never seen anything like it. My 2.5 year old especially loved the Septa bus and the rubber ducky waterway. We live in NYC and went ahead and purchased an annual membership as we plan to take our toddler...More

My son (2) enjoyed every square inch of this. Downstairs is more imaginative play than upstairs. Prices were on point with what you get. There were several different areas to play in and my son loved them all.

If you have young children, you need to visit the Please Touch Museum. Our 4 year old daughter had so much fun exploring all the different areas. She loved the carousel ($3 per ride or $5 for unlimited), the supermarket, and the transportation area. The...More

I would say it is not really suitable for a baby under 1 that does not walk or crawl. The baby would not be able to enjoy all the toddler activities so not worth spending the money. It is a great place for little ones but... More

I cannot answer for sure but I have to believe that they would probably prohibit it since there would be no one to escort you to and from the carousel. Also I have not seen a price advertised for that purpose.
