Group Visits to The Franklin Institute


Unforgettable Group Visits

At The Franklin Institute, there is no better way to enjoy fun, interactive science than with a group of your students, friends, family or peers. When you organize a group of 15 or more people, you’ll save the most money off the box-office price and have more fun as you explore with people you know.

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 trip. Payment is due three-weeks before your visit.
