Please Touch Museum prepares for layoffs

PHILADELPHIA - November 13, 2013

Museum officials announced Wednesday night that they will eliminate more than 9 staff positions and seek additional funding from both private and public sources.

The staff cuts are part of an effort to save some $400,000 this year.

The Museum's Board says the tough economy has hit cultural institutions particularly hard.

But, they say, the cuts will not impact museum operation.
