Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It’s one of the most innovative and stunning children’s museums in the world, housed in a true 19th century treasure. With dazzling architecture and colorful exhibits, your photos will be over-the-top awesome.
  • The South Foyer (the Museum’s grand entry) is a breathtaking spot for vows. Follow with a reception in the swoon-worthy Hamilton Hall, with its soaring 60-foot domed ceiling, and whimsical touches like a four-story replica of the Statue of Liberty’s arm…made entirely of toys!
  • Guests can't help but release their inner child as they wander the exhibit halls—favorites include a dazzling restored 1920s carousel, a Wonderland-inspired gallery, and an urban environment with a real SEPTA bus.
