I've been to the Franklin Institute more times than I can remember. Growing up in the area there were numerous trips with school, scouts, etc. As an adult, I've got to say that I don't feel that they've kept up with wear and tear on some of the exhibits very well but some of the more recent additions are nice. Where this museum really shines in my opinion are the special exhibits. Back in the fall I went with my wife and some friends to the Mummies of the World exhibition and were blown away. This was the second exhibit I had been to, the first being the King Tut one back in 2007(ish) and I was highly impressed with both. I don't make any trips to here unless one is going on that I'm interested in, afterwards taking a stroll through the rest of the museum, which is included in the price.
