Kids of All Ages: Defy Gravity and Enjoy Science
“Diligence is the mother of good luck.”—Benjamin Franklin. Philly visitors, be diligent about a stop at Pennsylvania’s most visited museum, The Franklin Institute. Allow enough time to make your way through the museum’s multiple floors, where entertaining and educational exhibits await. Ongoing attractions include a 350-ton locomotive, a giant walk-through heart, flight simulators, a high-wire bike ("Sky Bike"), and fun interactive exhibits about electricity, sports, machines, motion, and technology. The museum also includes an observatory, planetarium, and IMAX theater. Kids of all ages will enjoy themselves and learn something new at the same time. “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”—Benjamin Franklin
