Scout Day Information

Scouts have the entire museum to explore along with their fellow teammates and along the way, they’ll have a scout themed worksheet that they will be able to incorporate throughout each exhibition. This worksheet will go towards badges and achievements such as the Boy Scout Merit Badge—Game Design and the Cub Scout/Webelos Adventure—Game Design. In addition, scout groups of 15 or more will receive a commemorative Franklin Institute patch that will be mailed to group leaders after the visit!

Take advantage of this opportunity and call us to book your visit. We are dedicated to making The Franklin Institute the most memorable experience possible for you and your scouts!
