General Information
Description of AgencyPlease Touch Museum''s mission is to enrich the lives of children by creating learning opportunities through play. We believe young children learn best when they are engaged in playful, hands-on experiences in a social environment that encourages interaction with others; and we dedicate ourselves to ensuring that children, regardless of economic background, race, religion, gender, or disability, have equal access to these experiences. Please Touch Museum''s hands-on approach to education has been validated by the research of experts like Dr. Howard Gardner of the Harvard Graduate School of Education. He views a child''s sustained relationship with a museum as "a rich source of engaging projects which can pervade all educational environments, from home to school to workplace."
