Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Sprawled out inside a Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park, which was the original art exhibition hall for the 1876 Centennial Celebration, the PTM is a Philly favorite. Children of all ages can find something to love, whether it’s the life-size Septa bus they can “drive” or the multi-level water play area complete with rubber ducks, boats and even a raincloud that pours showers down every several seconds. The lower level boasts a kid-sized grocery store, play kitchen and a children’s hospital, complete with an x-ray machine, kid-sized MRI and lots of baby doll “patients.” The museum’s youngest guests enjoy several soft, safe crawling and climbing spots for kids under three while older ones ride the full-sized indoor carousel.
