In the heart of London, is Benjamin Franklin House, the world's
only remaining Franklin home. For nearly sixteen years between 1757
and 1775, Dr Benjamin Franklin - scientist, inventor, writer,
diplomat, Founding Father of the United States and more - lived
behind its doors. Built circa 1730, it is today a dynamic museum.
The Historical Experience presents the excitement of Franklin's
London years through live audio-visual performance. This dramatic
tapestry, featuring the words of Franklin, removes the traditional
distance between museum and visitor, bringing a sense of the
urgency and innovation that characterised his life in
Britain. It reveals Franklin's intertwining of
experimentation with personal and social responsibility,
illuminating the Age of Enlightenment he helped to create.
