The striking Benjamin Franklin Memorial greets people as they enter The Franklin Institute, Pennsylvania’s most-visited museum. Anyone can visit the rotunda for free during regular museum hours to view the 30-ton statue of Philadelphia’s favorite Founding Father, as well as the short multimedia show entitled Benjamin Franklin Forever, occurring at the top of each hour.
