WHYY (channel 12) staff were there and they were nicer to the white customers. The Please Touch Museum staff was rude and did not seem interested in assisting me at all, however was very nice and enthusiastic to the white customers. I will never go back. My child was not happy and felt as though we were treated differently and does not want to go back. We are African American.
