    The Please Touch Museum

    Roadside Attractions
    Travel around town! Climb into a real car, a SEPTA bus, or a trolley and go for a pretend ride. Stroll through City Park, grab some play ice cream at our Bassetts Ice Cream counter, build a car, or take a turn on one of our mini-backhoe machines. Children learn: gross and fine motor skills, STEAM literacy, collaboration, decision making, and communication.

    Woodside Park Dentzel Carousel
    Take a spin on our glimmering carousel, which was built over 100 years ago and was a mainstay of nearby Woodside Park for nearly half a century. After being warehoused by the Smithsonian Institution, the carousel's 52 animals (40 horses, four cats, four rabbits, two pigs, and two goats) and 1,296 lights were lovingly restored and brought back to Philadelphia. Carousel tickets are available at the admissions desk.

    Moundbuilders: Ancient Architects of North America, at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia, tells the sometimes enigmatic story of more than 5,000 years of Native American moundbuilding through photographs, archival excavation records, and more than 60 artifacts excavated at mound sites throughout the eastern United States.

    Four Days in West Kingston
    Through July 15, 2018 In May 2010, the “Tivoli Incursion,” a standoff between Jamaican security forces and a local gang leader wanted for extradition by the United States government, resulted in the death of at least 75 civilians in West Kingston on the island of Jamaica. This new exhibition—part art installation, part memorial, and part call to action—sheds light on those events through compelling video and audio footage featuring firsthand accounts.

About The Area

Welcome to Philadelphia - the cradle of liberty and the City of Brotherly Love. You'll find no shortage of fun things to do in this city - from the historic to the modern.

Philly is a sports fanatic's dream and a foodie's paradise. With several teams like the 76'ers, Phillies, Eagles, and Flyers creating a lot of action, you can easily catch a game no matter the season. After you've been athletically inspired, head to the Rocky Statue and run the stairs like Stallone (and every other tourist there).

Philadelphia isn't just a sports town, there's plenty of arts and culture. From art museums to eclectic neighborhoods like South Street and Society Hill, you'll get your fill of the creative. For family fun, be sure to bring the kids to the Please Touch Museum and the Philadelphia Zoo. Afterwards, don't forget to stop and eat one of the famous cheesesteaks.

Adventurers and history buffs will jump at the chance to take a guided tour of Eastern State Penitentiary, which housed the infamous “Scarface” Al Capone. Or there’s the Grim Philly Twilight Tours, which reveal the more provocative side of the City of Brotherly Love.
