The Franklin Institute | 15 August 2020

On Friday, I decided to go to the Franklin Institute and I became a member. I love supporting museums and since that museum has a lot of adult activities, it was well worth it to join. (It was also cheaper to become a member than pay for admission and for the special exhibit, which is Madame Tussaud’s The Presidents.)

I went to the Franklin Institute on Saturday and had a blast. It took me two hours to walk through The Presidents by Madame Tussaud’s. I had to take pictures with them. One of the security guards was watching me and as I exited the exhibit, she laughed and said, “it was a joy watching you run back and forth, posing and taking photos with the presidents.” We both laughed. Some were selfies, but mostly self timer.

After, I watched a few experiments, then an eye dissection.I actually like watching dissections. This was a cow’s eye and I learned a lot about the structure of the eye. Our eyes are just like cameras.

4.5 hours of fun! I sent dad some of the president photos, he absolutely loved them and I told him I will take him to see. I also told Christina that I became a member, so one Sunday we will go and enjoy the museum. Now, I’m a Philadelphia Museum of Art and Franklin Institute member. PMA is opened on 6 September!

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    These are good, sensible decisions on your part. I am proud of you for becoming a member of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Franklin Institute. Ever since I saw the horror movie House of Wax in the early 50s wax museums and wax figures have fascinated me. I have visited three different waxwork exhibits in my life. I’m sure I would thoroughly enjoy Madame Tussaud’s The Presidents. Your dad is right. You took some clever pictures with the various Presidents. That pic of you with Michelle and Barack makes it appear like you have joined them on stage as one of the speakers at the Democratic National Convention. 🙂 When it came to the Trump pic, at first I didn’t know what you were offering him. Then I realized it is a COVID mask. That’s a funny picture!

    I don’t know if I’d enjoy watching the dissection of a cow’s eye. I hope the poor cow was dead and gone by the time they started such a procedure. 🙂 The guys doing science demonstrations and experiments looks like a fun and interesting show. I hope you and Christina can spent a pleasant and educational Sunday at the museum in the near future.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!
