PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Some young revelers got to ring in the New Year at noon on Monday at the Please Touch Museum.

For parents, the annual New Year’s Eve celebration is a great way to give the little ones the experience of ringing in the New Year without having a tired child the next day.

“Oh I love it; they do a great job here,” one parent said.

“The kids love it and the grown ups love it. We had a wonderful time,” another agreed.

It’s also great for weary parents who might not be awake to ring in 2013 either.

“Try to [stay up]. After today, it’s exhausting, but it’s a fun exhausting,” a third parent explained.

New Year’s Eve is the busiest day of the year for the museum. Nearly 4,000 people showed up to ring in 2013 a little early.
