Visit Philadelphia: The Franklin Institute

We were heading back to our car on the Philadelphia Trolley Works Big Bus Tour, when I noticed a Game Masters banners at The Franklin Institute.

I thought this exhibition, which runs through September 3, would be fun for the kids, so we made an impromptu stop!

Game Masters celebrates five decades worth of video games, featuring over 100 games that visitors can play, including arcade icons Pac-Man and Space Invaders, to more recent trending games, such as Angry Bird and Rock Band.

The kids played everything from vintage arcade games to new (to them) games.  They could've spent the entire day there!
They did, however, spend some time exploring other exhibits in The Franklin Institute.

Founded in honor of America’s first scientist, Benjamin Franklin, The Franklin Institute is one of the most popular attractions in Downtown Philadelphia, with numerous exhibits that engage the minds of both the young and old.

The kids really enjoyed the SportsZone, where they got to test their balance and see how high they could jump.

They had fun exploring The Giant Heart, and it was neat to see a locomotive!

The Franklin Institute offered exhibits on Electricity, the Changing Earth, Your Brain, and so much more. 

The variety of hands-on exhibits throughout The Franklin Institute simply made learning all about science so interesting!

A visit to The Franklin Institute is both educational and entertaining, and fun for the entire family!

Mahalo to the sponsor for the four general admission tickets. A fifth admission, and separate admission to Game Masters for all members of my family, were purchased on my own.
