Before leaving Philadelphia in June 2016, I made sure to stop by Franklin Court, a site maintained by the National Park Service. I went to the Ben Franklin Museum, Franklin Court Printing Offices, and the Ghost Houses at Market Street. I also swung by the Franklin Fountain near by for some delicious ice cream. It was a fantastic educational time, and the museum and other offices on the properties are very hands-on, which makes it a great place to bring kids. I personally was obsessed with the Printing Offices and their demonstration of using the printing press. I bought a few pieces they printed on-site, including a copy of the Declaration of Independence (of course!).
