Benjamin Franklin Museum

Benjamin-Franklin-MuseumMost know Benjamin Franklin from depictions of the kite and key experiment with electricity and being the face of the 100 dollar bill. What many don’t realize is that he was an inventor.


This museum features interactive displays, artifacts and more. While it’s geared toward children it’s educational and fun for all. Try to carve out at least an hour. It’s within walking distance of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, so you won’t have to move your car.
