Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

The Franklin Institute

The Franklin Institute

The newest permanent exhibition at Pennsylvania’s most-visited museum delves into the fascinating world of the brain. Hands-on activities, brainteasers and giant climb-through neurons explain the inner workings of the noggin. As the staffers at The Franklin Institute like to say, the museum has always had a heart (as in, the iconic Giant Heart exhibit), and now it has a brain.
