Due to popular demand, tickets for special exhibits are limited and sold on a timed basis. Advance purchase using the print at home option is strongly recommended in order to bypass the box office and guarantee a date and time you prefer.
General Admission to The Franklin Institute includes access to three floors of hands-on science exhibits including permanent interactive exhibits, Live Science programs, the Joel N. Bloom Observatory, and one show in the Fels Planetarium (Discounts are available to groups of 15 or more, click here for info and ticket purchases).
Weekday mornings during April and May can be crowded with large groups taking field trips. Please plan your weekday visit accordingly.
