    $8.25 for $16.50 - the Franklin Institute: Fun & Interactive Science Museum

    Tip

    No doubt about it: Ben Franklin would have loved to explore the hands-on science museum that b.. read moreears his name and celebrates his spirit with exhibits as innovative and eclectic as "the first American" himself. Cool immersive experiences abound with three full floors of galleries, live demonstrations, planetarium shows, the Bloom Observatory and exciting traveling exhibits. Take a turn as the engineer for a working 350-ton locomotive at the authentic train factory, explore the giant walk-through heart, try to avoid the "bowling ball of doom" at Sir Isaac's Loft and much, much more, as you learn about engineering, aeronautics, physics, geology, and of course, Franklin's fave -- electricity.

I love this place regardless of kids running around. I know I can just shove them out of the way for being little punks. Just kidding! The ticket line was...

The Franklin Institute feels like a smaller, more kid-friendly version of AMNH. Almost a cross between AMNH and the Liberty Science Center maybe? I really...

Even big kids like us love this science museum. We can't get enough of the astronomy tower, IMAX theater, and yes, giant heart. Follow the @phlsciencefest for updates on the frequent events held here!

I'm here at least three times a year. They always have some cool traveling exhibit in town. I'm going to see Pompeii later this week and I've seen the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Titanic here. The gift shop is a bookworm's dream; expect to spend $30-ish to get in, but no less than $300 ....

Very nice and well laid out. Restrooms were clean and well distributed. Coat room was slightly awkward since it was on different floor from entrance and cost a dollar. Interactive exhibits seemed reasonably cared for. For fans of hands on physics Issac's Loft really stands out as fun exhibit. It....
