ABC Games at Please Touch Museum

ABC Games return to Please Touch Museum

Please Touch Museum will mark the return of a longtime museum favorite: the 9th Annual ABC Games, presented by US Airways, from June 5th to the 28th.

The month of learning through sporty play will fill the museum’s Rainforest gallery, located next to the Woodside Park Dentzel Carousel, for more than three weeks.

Activities for the 9th Annual ABC Games encourage an interest in sportsmanship, physical fitness and fun. New this year is a nature-inspired obstacle course that will weave its way through the Rainforest gallery, with a rock climbing wall and a variety of play opportunities that test strength, coordination, and fine and gross motor skills.

Please Touch will host an opening ceremony on Friday, June 5th at 10am featuring an athlete parade through the museum, the singing of the new ABC Games Anthem, and the lighting of the ABC Games Flame.
