The Inside Scoop by our Local Expert

Located in The Franklin Institute Science Museum in Philadelphia, the Ben Franklin National Memorial is a 20-foot high marble statue that commands visitors' attention as they enter Memorial Hall. The hall, originally opened in 1938, was designed by architect John T. Windrim and was created to reflect the design of the Pantheon in Rome. The stunning memorial was sculpted by James Earle Fraser from 1906 to 1911, and sits on a white Seravazza marble pedestal. The remainder of the room, including floors, walls and columns, are made up of rare marble that was imported from Portugal, Italy and France. Although this colossal monument is viewed by thousands of visitors each year, it is not listed on the National Register of Historic Places, unlike many other national monuments. Instead, the statue is affiliated with the National Park Service.As you venture past the memorial, you will find many of Franklin's original possessions including a mystery clock, a gift he received while in Paris, his composing table and several original publications.Since its opening seven decades ago, the Memorial has attracted more than 30 million visitors. Currently, the area is undergoing a $3.8-million renovation that includes a historical refurbishment, new lighting and audio/visual systems. Admission to Memorial Hall is free.
