Greetings From the Please Touch Museum
Al and I are visiting the new Please Touch Museum for the first time today. The Beaner's been here several times already and loves it. I'm really enjoying it, too; where the old place was almost claustrophobic, the new space has large rooms and soaring ceilings. It reminds me of the Pittsburgh Children's Museum, which we loved when we visited last Christmas.
At the moment we're in a room with Play-Doh and spongy dippin dots-like molding foam, foam blocks, trucks, and shapes that demonstrate fractions. There's a CD of children's show theme songs playing, and Al and I are playing Name That Tune while the Beaner moves from station to station.
The only thing I don't like about this place is the parents. The one thing that would make it better? COFFEE.
