GIVEAWAY: Win Tickets to the Debut of Franklin Institute’s New Wing and the “Your Brain” Exhibit


Franklin-Neural Climb-edited

This Saturday, The Franklin Institute will host the grand opening of its newest wing, the Nicholas and Athena Karabots Pavilion, and debut the much-anticipated “Your Brain” exhibit, and we’ve got two pairs of tickets to get you in for the special occasion.

As I’m sure you can imagine, the afternoon is about as kid-friendly as it gets. There will be an Xbox Connect console set up where guests can “fire neurons,” and be some of the first to climb “Your Brain”‘s 18-foot Neural Climb web structure. There will also be museum-wide scavenger hunts, a hodgepodge of circus performers, and magic shows by mentalist Max Major and sleight-of-hand magician Scott Sullivan.

The event kicks runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 14th. To win tickets (which will grant you access on Saturday and Sunday), just sign up for our newsletter in the box below. We’ll draw names by 4 p.m. on Wednesday, June 11th. If you don’t win tickets here, our Philly Mag Events page is also hosting a giveaway, which can be found here.
