Occasional Spaces

Amid the sprawling halls of The Franklin Institute is a wide array of event spaces, some of which are only offered on a limited-time or exclusive basis to our clients. With its hand-stained ceiling, wide-plank floors and mahogany bookshelves, the baroque style Pepper Hall (the first patent library in the United States) is an elegant space for a wedding or reception. The terraces of Cleo’s Portico, a seasonal restaurant designed in conjunction with the Cleopatra exhibit, can be a spectacular setting for a small gathering.
