Ben Franklin Museum, Philadelphia Reviews
This little gem was surprisingly interesting for me, my dh, and my 11 yo stepdaughter. I went into it not expecting much. We needed to kill an hour and we had never been there. Lots of interactive displays and friendly, knowledgeable docents. Be sure to stop by the post office and printing shop out back.
We loved this place, It is only $5.00 pp to get in and has the life story of BF. The Ghost structures outside of the museum are very interesting, don't forget to look down and read the inscriptions on the ground, they are very informative. Also while in the Museum, look for Skrugg the Squirrel, he helps explain the exhibits.
Site of our nations first post office. Great for kids and historians. Fun and educational
Very enjoyable! A bit disjointed... perhaps overdesigned and slightly lacking in criticism. And the braille signage is "grade 0"! However yes, definitely visit.
Ab excellent Museum for children and adults alike. They have a lot of exhibits here including railway terminal, the planetarium and the space exhibit. But the brain and heart exhibits were most informative. I quite enjoyed walking around the halls. They also have special exhibits happening in between that are very interesting and are charged seperately (not included in admission ticket) Those are great to watch but always check the timings and go. There's a theatre here too that has special exhibits running as well. Those are fairly longer. If planned well you can actually spend a whole day here with kids.
