"UNDERGROUND MUSEUM at FRANKLIN COURT" Franklin Court Tip by Sharrie

Franklin Court, Philadelphia: 4 reviews and 4 photos


Favorite thing: Be curious about Benjamin Franklin & visit the UNDERGROUND MUSEUM at FRANKLIN COURT. Portraits, inventions, & exhibits about his contributions to printing, politics & science are displayed here. Very interesting :)

Also, check out a film lasting about 20 minutes on his life & accomplishment by Discovery Channel titled 'The Real Ben Franklin'.

Show Time: 10.15, 11.00, 11.45, 12.30, 1.15, 2.00, 2.45, 3.30, 4.15, 5.00.

Fondest memory: Pictured here is a room within the underground museum where one gets to call famous people in the world. I had my connection with Ralph Waldo Emerson! Cool, isn't it?!
