Michelle Lee’s Summary
Isn’t the Please Touch Museum for kids?
It is – both BIG and small! The magnificent architecture, mixed with numerous fun activities, will have your guests saying, “Please take me back!” Of course, I am a little biased. Their DJ booth is one of the best around! In the middle of the booth is a gigantic, artsy replica of the Statue of Liberty’s arm holding the flame – SUPER COOL! (image to the right).
Yet, the DJ booth is only one of the reasons I love this venue. They had me at “Hello” when they told me about their unique cocktail hours. Their downstairs play area can actually be turned into an adult cocktail space with “Big Kid” activities. What’s more? You can get lost in Wonderland with Alice, pretend you produce TV shows, and ride a horse carousel. You and your guests may not be able to handle all this fun!

With all of these games, is the Please Touch Museum really a place to hold a wedding, or high end event?
OMG YES! The first time I walked through the front doors, I felt like I was Cinderella. Magnificent is the only word I can think of to describe the inside architecture and design. Truly, a venue fit for a princess, or prince! As a matter of fact, I can’t wait to DJ Christian and Mark’s wedding there this October!!!
Oh and there is one more reason I love this venue…. Hali Zaben! For more information about this unique venue space, or to book your event, contact Hali Zaben Sales Coordinator for Brulee Catering at the museum. By phone: 215.578.5186 By email: Hzaben@Brulee-Catering.com
