2013 Children's Museums Award
Please Touch Museum, Philadelphia, United States
In 1976, a forward-thinking Montessori educator, Portia Sperr, founded Please Touch Museum with the mission of enriching the lives of children by creating learning opportunities through play. In recent years the museum has undergone a period of rapid and profound growth. With 580,000 visitors per year it is among Philadelphia’s most-visited cultural venues. It has a long history of providing innovative learning experiences and resources that put young children at the centre. Museum remains committed to expanding the scope and impact of the programs with the continued velocity that it has founded.
