Benjamin Franklin House

Description

**2FOR1 offer is not available Monday – Tuesday**

The House’s main visitor offer, the Historical Experience show provides a unique experience, using the historic rooms that Franklin inhabited as a stage: blending live performance, sound, lighting and visual projection to tell the rich story of Franklin’s London years in his own words. The main character, Polly Hewson, daughter of Franklin’s landlady who became a ‘second daughter’ to Franklin, accompanies visitors through the House, as they experience a sense of the complexity of the man and the times in which he lived: food, health, botany, and daily living; social and personal relationships; scientific work and musical inventions; political tensions, triumphs and woes and a hurried return to America in the face of the looming War of Independence.

OFFER TIMES:

Wednesday – Sunday 12.00, 13.00, 14.00, 15.15 & 16.15

We are closed to the public on Tuesday.

Opening times may vary. Please check website for details.
