I haven't been here since a kid, but took my two kids, ages 3 and 7 and we had hours of fun. The exhibits were great, The area was clean. We had lots of fun but educational experiences! Definitely worth the traffic :)

Great place to spend a day especially with kids. A great deal of knowledge laid out in a simple and easy to understand format. The IMAX and planetarium shows were great. However, the seats were not reclining and I experienced neck pain after the show. Overall I highly recommend this place.

This museum is THE BEST!! I went here when I was a kid and immediately I was impressed by the science in there. The hands-on activities is lovely, especially the pendulum near the stairs. I especially love the brain section. I loved playing in there.

This place was overall fun & educational. The live science showed liquid nitrogen & how it can be used. The presenter was very interactive with the children in audience & they truly enjoyed. The Science of Fireworks show was Awesome. It gave the history of fireworks, showed how to make the different colors, & demonstrated what makes fireworks we see on Holidays etc. Lastly,the planetarium show was fascinating. It's a great place for kids & Adults to visit. I highly recommend visiting Franklin Institute!

We had a great time. The marvel exhibit has great. A little to old for my 1 and 2 year old but they did enjoy getting their pictures with the superheros. I was super pump to know that my Canadian membership to our local science Museum had reciprocal discounts. That was nice on the pocket book. The Museum its self was great . Full of learning.
