The Franklin Institute

Its stately colonnade overlooking the Ben Franklin Parkway and 20th Street has been an integral part of Center City Philadelphia’s French-inspired museum district since the 1930s. Today, The Franklin Institute, originally founded in 1824, is a world-class science and technology museum bustling with visitors. Frog Commissary has been the exclusive caterer at this majestic venue since 1987. With its wide range of event spaces, The Franklin Institute can accommodate intimate gatherings for five people, galas for 5,000, and just about anything in between.
