Overview

Your walking tour starts at Elfreth's Alley, where you’ll begin to explore Philadelphia through the lens of Benjamin Franklin, one of America’s most notable scientists, businessmen, politicians and philosophers.

Your expert historian guide will entertain you with enlightening commentary. Get an in-depth look at Franklin's life, his important role in society and his impact on American history, as well as the social and political changes that took place in this city during the 18th century. You'll also hear about his famous kite-flying incident, where he proved that lightning is electricity.

Visit sites central to Franklin’s life such as the post office, where he served as postmaster general. Stop by Franklin Court, Christ Church and the American Philosophical Society, and hear about his fascinating work as an inventor beyond the famous kite-flying story.
