This week's date night was the Pompeii exhibit (open now through April 2014) in the Franklin Institute. We only got tickets to this (~$14 each through Goldstar, plus a few dollars in fees), not admission to the entire museum. We got there at about 6pm on a Friday and since the museum had closed at 5pm but the exhibit stayed open til 9pm, it was pretty empty and really nice. There were no school children running around screaming, only a few other adults there. I am really interested in Pompeii (visiting next summer!) and my date is really into history, so we were excited that we could walk through at our leisure and look at all the artifacts and read the descriptions without feeling rushed or surrounded by other people. It's a really nice exhibit, a huge variety of artifacts brought over from Naples, and was very interesting. Definitely worth the admission price and I would definitely suggest going on a weekend at night after the FI has closed so you can really enjoy the exhibit like we did.
