Benjamin Franklin House is the world's only remaining Franklin home.

Between 1757 and 1775, Benjamin Franklin - scientist, diplomat, philosopher, inventor, Founding Father of the United States and more - lived behind its doors. Built around 1730, it is today a dynamic museum and educational facility. The Historical Experience presents the excitement and uncertainty of Franklin's London years, using rooms where so much took place as staging for a drama that integrates live performance, lighting, sound and visual projection.
