Benjamin Franklin House
In the heart of London is Benjamin Franklin House, the world's only remaining Franklin home. For nearly sixteen years between 1757 and 1775, Dr Benjamin Franklin - scientist, inventor, writer, diplomat, Founding Father of the United States and more - lived behind its doors. Built circa 1730, it is now a dynamic museum. The Historical Experience presents the excitement of Franklin's London years through live audio-visual performance. This dramatic tapestry, featuring the words of Franklin, removes the traditional distance between museum and visitor, bringing a sense of the urgency and innovation that characterised his life in Britain. It reveals Franklin's intertwining of experimentation with personal and social responsibility, illuminating the Age of Enlightenment he helped to create.
