The 16-foot walk-on piano Tom Hanks played in his 1988 film "Big" will be on display next month at the city's Please Touch Museum.

The instrument is a gift to the children's museum from a couple in suburban Merion who bought it after the movie's release.

In the movie, Hanks and actor Robert Loggia jump on the giant piano and walk out a duet of tunes that included "Chopsticks."

It was built in Philadelphia by Remo Saraceni who called his invention a Walking Piano.
