Franklin Institute Science Museum

The children will love this hands-on science wonderland, a place where kids are invited to touch, jump, run, ride, and climb while they discover the wonders of science. Start with a visit to the Science Center with its three floors of interactive exhibits including KidScience, an exhibit which takes children ages 5 to 8 on a journey across The Island of the Elements. Space Command lets kids locate their houses using a satellite home-tracking device. And walking through the hugely popular Giant Heart gives you and your children the chance to actually climb through an oversized ticker. There’s also an IMAX theater and a planetarium.
