CULTURA E INGLÉS LA COMBINACIÓN DEFINITIVA
“It’s MASSIVE,” I thought as I paid my $18.50 for entrance into the acclaimed science museum. I had heard about the recent 53,000-square foot addition, the Nicholas and Athena Karabots Pavilion, and all the locals were ranting and raving. “There’s nothing like it!” I grabbed my wallet, made my way into the center of Philly (stopping, of course, to grab a cheesesteak along the way) and made sure I didn’t miss this week’s Must See!
The Franklin Institute, as I’ve already mentioned, is huge. It’s so large-and-in-charge that you won’t know which exhibit to visit first. I mean, seriously. From a Sesame Street exhibition featuring the body (hey…I’m still a kid at heart. Aren’t you?) to the soon-to-be-released “Body Worlds: Animal Inside Out” you will not experience boredom for even a millisecond.
I was particularly keen on taking a look at the “Your Brain” exposition that was on display when I was visiting Philadelphia back in July. It was very well-planned and extremely interactive: you aren’t simply looking at diagrams of the brain and videos about how it works. Instead, you walk through a landscape that shows you about the way neurons and synapses work in an interesting way. The design was simply amazing and I didn’t feel after making my whole way through that the entrance fee was too expensive. Quite the contrary: it was worth it.
The concepts of each exhibit are varied and are sure to please each age group. There is a lot to do for kids, adults, and the retired. I was pretty tired too after walking through the whole science museum, which was built to honor the late Benjamin Franklin, but I could deal with it because it was such an inspiration. It was definitely worth a visit (or two…the entry ticket lets you view everything for TWO days!).
