The Franklin Institute
20th St. and Benjamin Franklin Pkwy.

To make the best use of your time, study the floor plan before exploring. You can sit in the cockpit of a T-33 jet trainer, trace the route of a corpuscle through the world's largest artificial heart (15,000 times life size), and ride to nowhere on a 350-ton Baldwin steam locomotive. You'll also be able to explore Sir Isaac's Loft,

which combines lessons in art and science, delve into the mechanics of more than two-dozen mechanical devices in

Amazing Machine,

and see Franklin's famous lightning rod. One don't-miss: the 30-foot-tall statue of Franklin.
