We visited the Franklin Institute especially to see the Pompeii exhibit. The exhibit was small but nice. We saw a film on volcanoes in the IMAX Theater; there was a 6.00 per person additional fee. They had demonstrations, too, that related to the volcano theme.
They also have a planetarium with different shows. We have been in there on prior visits; I would definitely see one of the shows. They are well presented.
There are various exhibits in the museum, always a little different. This time we saw a photo exhibit on the top 50 photos. We really liked it. We have taken our children there and they found it interesting, too.
There is a parking garage attached to the museum; we found it by using the GPS address found on the Franklin Institute web site specifically for parking. We paid 15.00 to park. The admission price was 27.50 per person. There were a few other things that were additional fees such as a 3D theater and sky bike you could ride.
The museum is in a nice area with other things to do as well. I would definitely recommend it.
