Please Touch Museum selects Franklin Fixtures. Franklin Fixtures recently completed a major Museum Store project at the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia, PA. Founded in 1976, the museum has just completed a renovation and move into Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park. The 3300 square foot store is located in this historic museum building so it was important for the store's design to be complimentary to the architecture and special care had to be taken to install the fixtures without damaging existing structures. The store was mentioned as one of the highlights of the Museums' opening on October 18th.
