The Franklin Institute

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.

Customer Reviews

The overnight experience was wonderful. My 11 year old and 2 friends really enjoyed the experience. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The program was well organized. Sleeping on the floor in the exhibits was fun, and not too uncomfortable. Highly recommend it.
