My family and I visited Franklin Court as part of a self-guided tour of historic Philadelphia. It was my 10-yr-old daughter's idea, having heard about it from school while learning about Revolutionary America, especially about Franklin's Print Shop and the Post Office. We stopped by both shops and listened to the gentleman printer give a history lesson about the print shop and printing back in the time of Franklin. We proudly purchased a copy of the Declaration of Independence, printed at that very shop, for three bucks, basically acquiring a piece of history more or less. It was also interesting to get a glimpse of parts of the foundation of Franklin's house.
Unfortunately the Benjamin Franklin Museum was closed by the time we got to it.
