“Believing this News would be agreeable to our Friends, I take the first Opportunity of communicating it to you; and hope that nothing will happen in the meantime, to change the favourable Sentiments towards us” – Benjamin Franklin, London 1769
Benjamin Franklin House is now open to the public in line with UK government guidelines. From 10 July, we will be open Friday-Sunday, 12-5 for Architectural Tours. We hope to begin running our primary offering, the Historical Experience, before the close of summer.
Franklin’s Young Inventors is our science club for Key Stage 3 (ages 11-14) which takes place on Tuesdays after school and on Saturday mornings.
Participants learn all about the experiments carried out by Benjamin Franklin and his British friends as well as trying their hand at practical investigations. A range of core topics from the science curriculum are covered including electricity, forces, sound and the human body.
For more information or to book contact the Education Manager. Secondary schools can also book free taster sessions for their Key Stage 3 classes.
Funding for Franklin’s Young Inventors has generously been provided by the United States Government.
