All will enjoy access to the Please Touch Museum's fun-filled, completely hands-on exhibits that promote creativity, imagination, deductive reasoning, and critical thinking through six interactive exhibit zones, four interactive imagination stations, plus over 30 exhibitors, all across 157,000 square feet.

    11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. - Makin Music Rockin Rhythms
    Join the region's leading music and movement provider for 15-minute classes of interactive entertainment. When childen sing or play music, they become better readers, thinkers and learners.
