We are the PTM

PTM United is comprised of the hard working individuals whose commitment and dedication go into making the Please Touch Museum a beloved part of Philadelphia. Through our partnership with AFSCME DC 47 the workers of PTM have come together to create an empowered workforce for our museum, our community, and each other.

Museum Learning

Museum Learning (ML) is the heart and soul of what PTM does – we craft and continuously improve programming that we bring to families at PTM. Our efforts have helped thousands of families develop and hone their passions for learning through play. We are proud to stand with PTM United.

Visitor Experience & Admissions

Admissions Assistants are the the first line of contact for our patrons. We handle ticket and membership purchases, as well as fielding customer service requests in person, by phone, and by email.

VEAs help keep our visitors safe and engaged with our exhibits, and will help out other floor staff as needed. We are equipped to answer visitor questions, run programming, handle emergencies, work with AA at our front desk, and of course run the carousel!

Office Staff

Wall-to-wall support means all of us! We are PTM United from administration to development, marketing, and IT. We raise money for programs & exhibits, keep social media looking good, & ensure all systems run smoothly.
