COVID-19 Update: We are offering remote history and politics workshops, while our building is closed. Please contact our Education Manager for more details.

A visit to Benjamin Franklin House can support both History and Politics at A Level.

On the Historical Experience, students will learn about the excitement and uncertainty of Franklin’s years in London leading up to the American Revolution. This unique offering uses Franklin’s historic rooms as staging for a drama in his own words, seamlessly integrating live performance, sound and projection. They will also receive a talk which delves deeper into Franklin’s political role. This session has been designed to support students studying the American Revolution.

Visits can be booked on Wednesday-Friday at 12pm, 1pm and 2pm with a maximum of 30 students per session.

Schools can also book a free outreach workshop, following their visit.
