Franklin Institute

Discover something new at The Franklin Institute, where kids and parents can explore the fun side of science through twelve cutting-edge, hands-on exhibitions.

Explore the inner workings of the human heart in the two-story longtime favorite, The Giant Heart; find out what makes your neurons fire in the award-winning Your Brain; take a ride on the indoor SkyBike; and see explosive, live science shows.

Catch a film on the 5-story tall IMAX®, have a multi-sensory experience in the 3D Theater, or travel to faraway galaxies in the Planetarium.
