please touch museum
In 2017, Preservation Design Partnership was awarded a contract with the Please Touch Museum located in historic Memorial Hall.
Designed by Herman J. Schwarzmann, the National Historic Landmark was built for the 1876 Centennial Exhibition, the first major World’s Fair in the United States. Housing the Please Touch Museum since 2005, the building was the first home of the Philadelphia Museum of Art as well as the University of the Arts.
PDP will complete a Building Assessment and Preliminary Preservation Report for the Memorial Hall building and grounds.
