Benjamin Franklin Museum

Benjamin Franklin Museum

It’s fitting that the world’s only museum devoted to Benjamin Franklin is in Philadelphia, the city that the Founding Father called home and helped build. Re-opened in summer 2013, the museum explores the life and legacy of Philadelphia’s most famous citizen. Located in Franklin Court and part of Independence National Historical Park, the museum’s new expansive glass window allows visitors inside to view the iconic Ghost Structure, which marks the site where Franklin’s house once stood. The interior of the museum features artifacts, computer animations and interactive displays.
