Philadelphia Wedding In October
Philadelphia   |   October, 2013   |   Attractions

"A giant Ben Franklin statue greets you as you enter this science museum. We love to visit for both continuing and visiting exhibits, plus the IMAX and planetarium theaters. The Giant Heart is one of the key selling points, but we’d recommend just watching from afar; it takes a healthy…and skinny…individual to brave crawling through."
