Crafted between 1906 and 1911, this 30-ton statue is the masterpiece of the famed Memorial Hall and the oft-visited Franklin Institute. An ideal stop for history buffs, Ben Franklin National Memorial stands at the entry of the Institute, where visitors will find plenty of American history, changing exhibits and stories of American struggle and triumph.
