It follows naturally that his contributions have inspired generations of Americans. The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia is one such landmark that celebrates the man. The institute serves as a science museum, education center and event venue. Apart from exhibits that date back centuries, there are interactive rooms, so patrons can experience it all themselves. A session in the escape room will test your noggin, while the sports zone pushes your physical fitness levels.
