Last week Fun Things was given the chance to visit the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia. We were invited to check out their newest exhibit Rainforest Rhythms. Each time I visit the Please Touch Museum I fall in love with it some more. I love that the museum encourages young children to use their imaginations and learn through play. Check out our video below to see the fun we had.
This fun interactive exhibit opened at the museum on May 28th and will be there until September 6th. Children will experience the rainforest by beating conga drums, turning rain stick logs, listening to tropical rapids, and interacting with jungle animals.
PTM’s youngest visitors will be able to play in Rhythm’s “Storybook Cottage,” a comfortable area that is toddler friendly. Next to the cottage, children can play the forest marimba with a pair of mallets, or pretend to paddle down a river in a dugout canoe.
