"Founded to commemorate and continue the inventive spirit and scientific genius of Benjamin Franklin, the imposing Franklin Institute stands solid as a rock on 20th Street in Philadelphia. Science is a phenomenon -- a process. You can't put it in a museum display case. On display at the Franklin Insititute is a surprising collection of ordinary, everyday experiences like stability, momentum, speed. Yet its rich historical collection also charts the progress of science in America, from Benjamin Franklin's lightning rod to the Wright Brothers airfoils and flight experiment records, to one of the earliest planetariums in America. The Franklin Institute aims to awaken the scientist in each and every one of us." From
