Franklin Court

Recommended
Demolished long ago, Franklin Court, a family home, has been re-created around a steel frame. A museum shows an interesting array of audio-visual presentations that celebrate Franklin's life and genius. The Printing Office reflects the importance of the press and the distribution of news, of which Franklin had been one of the first proponents. The print shop that he built for his grandson has been replicated (demonstration of the machinery several times a day).
