This winter experience FUN down to a science at The Franklin Institute! Experience science, history and art in our newest special exhibitions: Vatican Splendors, Lost Egypt, and The Science Behind Pixar.

Experience 2,000 years of Vatican history in our new Vatican Splendors exhibition. Every object in the exhibition tells its own story, together forming a great historical mosaic of the Vatican—and many of the artifacts have never before been on public view at the Vatican in Rome. Touch the Saint John Paul II’s hand.
