    This was a pretty good museum. It was very interactive and hands-on; great for little kids. There was a lot I learned from this museum, including information about his life, his inventions, and historic Philadelphia. Overall, a pretty great museum about the person on the $100 bill.

    Great museum focusing on Benjamin Franklin's life and accomplishments. Put the events of his life in historical context. Many hands on exhibits. Well worth the 5$

    For only $5 its worth it. Lots of interesting things to see. Good ol' Ben Franklin. $100 bill ya'll. It's all about the Benjamins

    For $5 it's not a bad stop but it's mostly a lot of videos showing various aspects of his long and varied life. Paintings and other memorabilia are almost all reproductions so I was disappointed to not see many things actually belonging to Franklin.

Where to stay in Philadelphia

Most of Philadelphia's hotels cluster around the compact city center, ensuring quick and easy access to major tourist sights and activities. The only drawback to staying in this area is the lack of free parking, so if you're exploring by car, considering booking into a bed and breakfast in one of the city's residential blocks. Visitors planning on longer stays can also consider several apartment hotels, offering spacious furnished units with complimentary Wi-Fi, free bike rentals, and access to rooftop terraces.
