Best Time to Visit!
Weekday mornings during April and May can be crowded with large groups taking field trips. We are confident that you will have a great time at The Franklin Institute no matter when you visit. We strongly suggest purchasing tickets in advance, and recommend for a less busy experience to come on weekends and weekday afternoons.
