All reviews alice in wonderland water area great place for kids water play shoe store merry go round older kids carousel ride year olds septa bus all ages different areas fairmount park rainy day lots of fun franklin institute rockets
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.

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 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 they should at least be walking to fully enjoy all there is to touch/play with.

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.
