  • This museum offers a great insight into the life of Benjamin Franklin and a very interactive way of representing it. It charges nominal fees and would take about 45 minutes to an hour to take a tour.....  more »

  • We didn't go inside the museum itself (it costs admission - can't remember prices, but it wasn't too bad at all). The exhibits outside, however, are really cool. We loved looking down onto the original foundation of the Franklin home and reading the letters and descriptions from the family and friends. This specific stop really added humanity to the political history of the Independence Mall area.
  • Not all museums can strike the right balance between engaging kids and informing adults but this museum does. Worth every penny! As a teacher and mother, I appreciated how many interactive points encouraged children to reflect and analyze Franklin's words and choices.
