Fairmount Museums and Galleries
Please Touch Museum
4231 Ave. of the Republic, Fairmount Park
Besides the fact that this is possibly the best named children museum we've come across, the Please Touch Museum earns brownie points for its stunning 1908 carousel, which is as beautiful as it is entertaining. Founded back in the 1970's by a Montessori educator, PTM targets kids below age seven with tons of interactive exhibits, activities, and kid-sized play spaces. Check the calendar for activities like story time, sing-alongs, and crafts, which happen at designated times daily.
