Summer Camp Group Outings

A group of boy scouts having fun in the Electricity exhibit at The Franklin Institute.

The Franklin Institute is the ultimate destination for summer groups to come beat the heat while enjoying interactive (and air conditioned!) science exploration.    

In an effort to make sure groups have a great experience in our museum, and that we aren’t over-crowded, we have capped the number of visitors we get on a daily basis.  Summer dates fill up fast, so make your reservation as early as possible. 

One chaperone per 10 youth is required.  Groups receive 1 free General Admission chaperone ticket for every ten youth tickets for weekday museum visits.  Chaperones pay for all ticketed attractions including special exhibits. Chaperones are considered all adults with the group, including teachers, administrators, nurses and parents. Chaperones in excess of the required ratio will pay the discounted adult rate.  Chaperone rates are not available on weekends or holidays.  Chaperone rates are applied to groups of 15 or more people. Chaperones must be at least 18 years of age.


To schedule your group outing, fill out our registration form, email or call 215-448-1200, Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

We will contact you within two business days to set up your field trip. Payment is due three-weeks before your visit.
