Benjamin Franklin Memorial Hall

Imagine your event 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 tall statue of Benjamin Franklin, which sits beneath an 82-foot domed ceiling and gold gilded oculus.

The event space is dramatically framed by 16 marble columns, and offers state-of-the-art audio visual capabilities. The 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 to enhance your event and to seamlessly move your party from pre to post dinner festivities.

Jordan Lobby

Serving as your stately entrance, Jordan Lobby adds to the grandeur and history of the Benjamin Franklin National Memorial. It is the ideal companion area for pre and post events held on the main level of the museum. The lobby’s marble floors and high, hand-painted linen ceiling add a sense of elegance to any function.
