Benjamin Franklin at 300

Fausta's Blog pays tribute to Benjamin Franklin in honor of the great man's 300th birthday. For those of you interested in Franklin, you need to visit the Constitution Center in Philadelphia. Their current exhibit, Benjamin Franklin: In Search of a Better World, includes many unique and valuable artifacts from Franklin's life. For example, his personal copy of the Constitution and an original copy of the Declaration of Independence are on display.
Our extended family (4 adults, 6 kids) visited the center over the Christmas break, and really enjoyed the exhibit and the show. Even our 3-year-old found some things to interest him.
The Franklin exhibit runs until April 30th.
