A grand entrance with a large ceremony space welcomes you in the South Foyer. Perfect for pre-wedding festivities or hosting a ceremony, the South Foyer shares the same majestic and classically detailed design as Hamilton Hall.

A favorite portrait location for Iryna Shostak Photography is the Carousel House. Fully restored 1908 the Dentzel Carousel is housed in a 9,000 square foot glass enclosure with a separate entrance. Featuring hand carved animals in rich and vibrant colors; the Carousel House at The Please Touch Museum is a stunning, carefree and colorful spot for wedding party portraits. No end of fun, romantic pictures can be captured on this distinctive, gorgeous, and lively Carousel.


Dive down the rabbit hole and be your own Alice in a Wonderland of Love when you hold your festivities in the East Gallery. Couples can walk together through fields of grass taking, stopping for reflection pictures in the small pond and then venture down the 70-foot flowing river, all in the East Gallery. A whimsical exhibit, couples can be captured in the upside down of Alice’s room on the checkboard floor with the shrinking walls. The East Gallery at The Please Touch Museum makes for incredibly fun, eclectic wedding portraits celebrating the inner kid in all of us.


Engage your modern hipster in the West Gallery, an urban environment featuring high rises, shops, a city park, and even a SEPTA bus. This fun city-within-history hosts a reception of up to 1,000 guests, and like all seven locations, family and friends will enjoy James Beard Award-winning cuisine from exclusive caterer Brulee Catering by Chef Jean-Marie Lacroix.
