Grand Opening of the Story Castle is tomorrow!

Tomorrow, Saturday, January 9 at Noon, Please Touch Museum will unveil its newest feature. . . .

The Story Castle!

We are over the moon about the opening of this very special, intimate programming space located in the museum's Kids Store. You can expect to see a variety of programming happening there seven days a week: story times, story telling, puppet pals, and special visits from our favorite storybook characters!

The Story Castle will provide kids with a smaller and quieter space to enjoy PTM’s interactive, dramatic, and storytime programming. While it is easily accessible from the gallery floor, it is tucked away in our Kids Store so that you and your child can enjoy a story and other programming in a calm, relaxed atmosphere.

Literacy skills are an important educational benchmark in young children, and the Story Castle will offer kids a chance to participate in PTM’s interactive literacy programming in an environment conducive to enhanced focus and concentration. It is never too early to read with your child and introduce them to books and reading, and engaging activities help to create the cognitive foundation that is necessary for a lifetime of learning.

I hope you can join me tomorrow at Noon for the grand opening celebration, which will feature storytimes every hour on the hour, plus special appearances by Cinderella and the Queen of Hearts, along with your favorite PTM puppet pals!
