Polymath Festival at Benjamin Franklin House (Postponed)

Postponed until autumn 2020

Benjamin Franklin was the archetypical Enlightenment polymath. Known to most as a Founding Father of the United States, he also made many intellectual, institutional and social contributions as a celebrated publisher, entrepreneur, writer, philosopher, scientist, inventor, diplomat and statesman.

As part of the Polymath Festival, Benjamin Franklin House stages an immersive tour of the world’s only remaining home of Benjamin Franklin with a drama that seamlessly blends live interpretation and cutting edge sound, lighting, and visual projection to tell the rich story of Benjamin Franklin’s 16 polymathic years in London.

Ultimately, the tour begs a fundamental question: what can Franklin’s approach to life and work teach us today?
