The health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff, volunteers, and community is our highest priority.
The Franklin Institute is temporarily closed during the COVID-19 outbreak, and all events and programming during this time have been canceled.
We will continue to follow recommended guidelines to protect our community, revising our plans in response to the changing situation.
Thank you for your patience as we navigate these challenges together, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the museum soon.
FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Throughout our closure, we have a team of scientists and educators prepared to deliver frequent doses of fresh and engaging science for all ages across our social platforms and on our website.
