If I am visiting, where do I
Parking in the Franklin Institute garage (entrance on 21st street) is most convenient.
We cannot validate parking after hours and the full rate is in effect.
Street parking is fairly abundant at meeting time since many are leaving the city.
The yellow areas highlighted below have meter parking in effect till 8:00 PM.
It is more affordable to pay for the 1 hour meter fee if you arrive at 7:00 p.m.
The spots highlighted are within view of the Franklin and are a short easy walk.
How do I enter the building if it is
after museum hours?
Employee entrance shown on map is always open.
There is a security official sitting just inside the door.
If you park in the garage, you enter through the Atrium.
Information desk or security will direct you to the meeting location.
