Best Time to Visit!
Weekday mornings during the summer can be crowded with large groups taking field trips.  We are confident that you will have a great time at The Franklin Institute no matter when you visit!  If you are looking for shorter lines and a less busy experience, we suggest individuals purchasing tickets do so on weekends and on weekday afternoons. 


The Franklin Institute will be closed all day on the following days:

November 28, 2019: Thanksgiving Day
December 24, 2019: Christmas Eve
December 25, 2019: Christmas Day
