$3 entry fee, most people go to see the resting place of Ben Franklin which you can see through the fence. Only for die-hards!

It was a little pricey for an entry fee just to walk inside. You have to pay extra for a paper map. But it was pleasant and peaceful, nice and shady in the heat. We threw pennnies on Ben's grave.

Small charge, check the hours, Ben Franklin and daughter are here plus a couple other signers. You can also just look through the iron gate! There is also a great view from inside the US Mint across the street.

I attended the program above at the Christ Church Burial ground. The tour guide was great and all the information presented was interesting. I also attended A Revolutionary Christmas at Christ Church in December. I highly recommend any program sponsored by them.
