Benjamin Franklin House

Located in the heart of London, Benjamin Franklin House is the world’s only remaining home of Benjamin Franklin. The Georgian townhouse, built c.1730, opened to the public as a dynamic museum and educational facility on Franklin’s 300th birthday – 17th January 2006, to illuminate a momentous period in British and American history. Inspired by Benjamin Franklin, our mission is to bring history and innovation to life through our inspiring educational programmes, engaging calendar of events, and ways to view the house, which makes real the life and times of Benjamin Franklin at 36 Craven Street.
