  • Interesting museum about the life and inventions of Benjamin Franklin. Contains real artifacts that belonged to Franklin. Well maintained.
  • Really nice little museum. I would recommend it. One side note. When I was trying to pay with Samsung Pay, the attendant got really mad and swiped my phone away. He said that it causes the pay terminal to crash. Not sure if he understood how Samsung Pay works or whether it indeed was a problem. But he was very upset. It seems one of the previous reviewer had the same problem with the very rude cashier. So be very careful with trying use mobile payment there lest you get punched in the face.
  • An interactive museum cataloging Ben Franklins inventions and contributions to the world. Love a hands on museum.
  • It was very clean. The Rangers were informative and nice. It's simply amazing how much Ben Franklin accomplished. The museum gives a taste of the plethora of Ben Franklin's achievements throughout his life. They also have a steel structure outlining Ben Franklin's original home. One of the most alarming facts I learned was that Ben Franklin's grand children did nothing to preserve his original home. So it all crumbled. The amount of money they lost out on....
  • The museum itself was great, however the cashier (not the ranger was extremely rude to me. Not allowing me to pay with my phone. Not the type of treatment I'd expect from a museum. Completely ruined the experience for me.
