Sometimes, kids just need a place where they can roam free and put their little hands on everything they possibly can. While most museums forbid this, the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia welcomes it and even encourages it! According to the Please Touch Museum website, learning through play is a key component in children’s cognitive, social and physical development.
