Franklin Seminar Small Group Walking Tour in Philadelphia

Walking Tours in Philly

This is a fun small-group tour (6 max) of Philadelphia, including the main archaeological sites of the city and the city's official archaeology lab.

Few people in history have enjoyed such a symbiotic relationship with their city as Benjamin Franklin with Philadelphia. Inventor, scientist, businessman, manager, politician, philosopher, and patron—Franklin embodied the eclectic but directed energy of booming Philadelphia in the mid- and late-18th century.

In this three-hour walking seminar on Benjamin Franklin you will use him as a lens to discuss the great changes and social and political upheaval taking place in Philadelphia during the last half of the 18th century. Along the way, you'll look deeply into the biography of Franklin as you visit sites in Philadelphia that relate and come away with a more contextual understanding of his impact on American history.

Your walk will vary from day to day but include such sites central to Franklin's life as the post office at Franklin Court, Christ Church, and the American Philosophical Society. Your docent will spend time looking at the some of the facets of the multifaceted figure, including his work as an inventor (beyond the kite-flying story) and as a manager (his role as postmaster general was exemplary). Of course, serious attention will be given to Franklin's role in the Revolutionary War and international diplomacy as well as to the Continental Congress.

For a more intimate experience, you can choose to upgrade to a private tour for up to 6 persons.
