Benjamin Franklin House Team
Benjamin Franklin House is open to the public on Mondays and Wednesday – Sunday offering a unique visitor experience.
The Historical Experience runs from Wednesday – Sunday: The eighteenth century spaces serve as stage for a drama that seamlessly blends live interpretation and cutting edge sound, lighting, and visual projection to tell the rich story of Franklin in London.
Architectural Tours run on Mondays: Explore the Georgian features of House, along with its fascinating history encompassing Franklin’s long residence (1757-1775), the Hewson anatomy school, and the comprehensive conservation project that saved it from dereliction.
