The Franklin Institute

Inaugurated in 1824, the Franklin Institute of Philadelphia is the oldest museum and research institute dedicated to the sciences in the United States. The institute is also at the cutting edge of the latest innovations in the field of museum arranging, offering a large number of interactive tools for visitors. Virtual reality technology is an integral part of the SportZone, unveiled in 2015, dedicated to sports science. In a completely new permanent exhibition you will discover all the secrets of the extraordinary organ that is the brain. Lastly, a screening under the 3D dome of the Tuttleman Theater on themes as varied as whales, space or the history of Jerusalem is a must-see.
