    The worst part about the Franklin Institute is that there's too much to see and do in one trip. If your going i recommend catching a train or an Uber to avoid the terrible city parking.

    Go to their exhibits!! The Pixar one was so cool! And their science after hours are great for adults! Especially the 20's speak easy

    This place is fantastic. Plus we are members of the Imagination Station in Toledo, which got us free access and discount tickets on Special Exhibits!

    The Science Behind Pixar is a fantastic exhibition! Very interactive. We spent 2 hours seeing it. Highly recommended!

    Even as I grow older, the giant heart never gets old (it just feels smaller!)

    I grew up going here. Your kids will like it if you can get them off their iPads.

    It's a beautiful place to take the kids but save your pennies before you go. Certain exhibits aren't included in the admission price and it can make for an expensive day. $26 bucks to park!

    Never again. Overrun with unsupervised camp kids. Parking garage is poorly ran. Don't lose your ticket after paying because they won't let you leave even though they're the ones you paid!!

    Science after hours. Playtime for 21+. Be sure to get a ticket ahead so you don't show up and it's sold out

    BODY WORLDS: Animal Inside Out was a bit disappointing. Exhibits themselves were good, but signage and extra information was poorly written and put together. We felt it wasn't worth the entry cost.

    A fun day out but exhibits lean towards the younger visitors and too many of them aren't working and need repair.

    The food court was reasonable and tasty. Love the interactive exhibits and shows. Don't come here first thing, start at noon and stay until after the camp and school groups go home.

    This museum has a lot of great exhibits, however, avoid going during school hours or you'll be surrounded by screaming kids
