The Please Touch Museum offers a unique experience for children. Its exhibits are all hands-on, and young children can experiment with and understand things in the way that is most effective for kids – by manipulating and physically exploring them. In 2008, the Museum moved to Memorial Hall in west Fairmount Park. The Hall was built to house the centennial exhibition in 1876, and exhibits to engage children and adults include an 1876 train depot and a restored and functioning carousel.
