No doubt about it: Ben Franklin would have loved to explore the hands-on science museum that bears 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.

You can take public transit or drive (as we did). We found ample street parking 1 block away. We parked for $1.25 per hour. Be careful, though. Parking times, rates and method of payment (coins only at meters or credit card at the muni-meter) vary widely around the museum. Parking enforcement officers are everywhere. Avoid a ticket, read the signs carefully. There is a parking garage in the museum, but we didn't use it.The Franklin Institute travel • Aug 07 2014 star this tip starred
