Plan to stay several hours! Pack a lunch and eat in the lobby if you want to avoid buying the food for sale. Fun for all ages of kids and adults! Plenty of awesome things--we couldn't see it all in one day!

From Our Editors

When Samuel Vaughan Merrick and William H. Keating brought The Franklin Institute to life in 1824, it was to honor the life and achievements of Renaissance man Benjamin Franklin. In the decades since, the Institute has hosted further forward thinkers such as Nikola Tesla, who demonstrated wireless telegraphy in 1893, and helped advance science and technology, hosting the first public demo of an all-electronic TV system in 1934.
