A reminder of what is most important came via an email a guest sent to The Franklin Institute Guest Services recently:
A Reminder of What is Most Important
Fresh From the Oven
As summer winds down to warm but briskly scheduled fall days, I can’t help but reflect on the change of pace. There’s something so enjoyable about the slower tick of summer, especially in the city
. Yet once you’re caught in the whirl of workdays, the new season buoys you along, ready or not.
Party in Focus
When the Democratic National Convention came to town this summer, The Franklin Institute became party central, hosting nine events over a whirlwind four days. Each event spanned anywhere from 200-1200 guests, and included receptions for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the Michigan Democratic Party, the DNC Philadelphia Host Committee and Celebrate NJ NOW, as well as panels and televised presentations for organizations such as the Progressive Action PAC and Real Clear Politics

Coming Soon to the Franklin Institute
The Franklin Institute has had a wonderful 2015, welcoming the most visitors since 2007 and introducing new educational experiences, including the reimagined SportsZone. Next year will bring a slate of exciting traveling exhibits, including Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets, Modern Science running from January 30, 2016 through September 2
Franklin Foodworks Du Jour
A large portion of Franklin foodworks’ customers are the kids of all ages who visit the The Franklin Institute—thus our hand-breaded chicken fingers, fresh made pizza and all-beef hot dogs are big sellers. But we know that the parents accompanying these young visitors are looking for quality and freshness as well as more sophisticated fare so we always keep the proceedings interesting.
