Hide and Seek of the Week

This week's Collections object is the Hercules Jazz Band!

This stamped tin "one man band" was manufactured by J. Chien and Co. in New Jersey, during the early part of the twentieth century. Our well-loved version of the Hercules Jazz Band includes a large bass drum with foot pedal, snare drum and cymbal. It originally had two additional cymbals, a triangle and cowbell!

Put on your looking eyes and see if you can find it during your next visit! For more info about Hide and Seek of the Week, click here.

We're all about learning through play.

Join Pinky, one of Please Touch Museum's resident puppets, on an inside look into all the fun, educational things happening at Philly's Children's Museum. This blog is not just about what we do at the museum, but about the educational philosophy behind why we do what we do.
