I had to travel to Philly for work for a few days.  Why am I still so bad at leaving my kids, dog and husband?  The trip was a bit grueling in that I missed them all .. but Rittenhouse Square is an area I hadn’t seen much of before.  What cute streets and alleys!  And there is a mural walking tour that I must see the next time I go…

Really, does the name get any better than this? So far this is hands down the best children’s museum I’ve ever been to. Maybe I’m mostly impressed that this gorgeous old building was salvaged and converted to a children’s museum, instead of simply mowed down and built anew. Or maybe I love how many of the old toys and artifacts are woven into the new exhibits instead of being set aside to another section of the museum. Honestly it seems all kids’ museums have the same exhibits: the car garage and gas station, the water play area — but Please Touch does it bigger and better. And downstairs included a doll hospital, play McDonald’s Restaurant, and an amazing 2 story tree surrounded by an Alice in Wonderland play zone. We loved driving through Philadelphia in the first place, now this museum gives us even more reason to visit!
