Ben Franklin Memorial

Imagine your show-stopping corporate event or your one-of-a-kind social affair under the attentive eye of Benjamin Franklin himself. As the centerpiece of the museum, the Benjamin Franklin National Memorial has been a popular location for distinctive events hosted by Fortune 500 companies, United States Presidents, foreign dignitaries, and local businesses.

Inspired by the Roman Pantheon, the Memorial is home to a 20 foot statue of Benjamin Franklin, which rises beneath an 82 foot domed ceiling and gold gilded oculus. The event space is dramatically framed by 16 marble columns which perfectly balance the stately with the new, state-of-the-art audio visual capabilities. The new lighting and audio features can be customized to illuminate and enhance your event with clarity and elegance.

The Benjamin Franklin National Memorial can be paired with Jordan Lobby or Bartol Atrium to enhance your event and to seamlessly move your party from pre to post dinner festivities.
