Concierge.com's insider take:

You gotta love the walk-through heart, which thankfully has been refurbished and expanded since it was built in 1953. (The graffiti has been erased and the crumbling papier-mâché has been re-mâchéed.) The museum, originally constructed as a tribute to Benjamin Franklin's inventions, now specializes in hands-on science and technology exhibits. You can climb aboard a 350-ton, 101-foot Baldwin steam locomotive, the largest ever built; the Franklin Air Show, a great collection related to powered flight—including a T-33 jet trainer—just might capture the attention of those foot-dragging teens.

Open daily 9:30 am to 5 pm.
