Franklin Institute and Penn's Landing

I spent most of my day in the Franklin Institute; my knee hurt again and I bought the movies and museum package (package #3) because it was cheaper than individually buying them. I watched the Penguins in 3D in the 3D theatre at 10:45am. I also saw Flight of the Butterflies on their IMAX at 1:15pm (that was the most expensive... that would have been $22.50 separately, with the museum and the movies, it was $24.50). In between I just explored the museum.

The heart! You can actually walk through it and learn all about it. My personal favorite. :)

The movie ended at 2pm and then I left the Franklin Institute. I was shocked by how hot it was outside. I knew I didn't want to wait for the bus, so I walked to the MFL (elevated subway) to take to 2nd Street to walk to Penn's Landing to see the food festival. When I arrived, I think I was too early for the more sophisticated meals, but it was lame when I was there (pretzels, funnel cake, etc) and I was VERY hot. It was nice sitting at the water front though. I would definitely go back when it's cooler.

And finally: My 24th Birthday (a photo album)


  1. Great pictures; I'm glad you had a good time. :) Sorry to hear about your knee, though. :(

    1. Thank you. :) It was a nice day and I'm glad I spent most of it in the FI. It was 95 degrees outside. :)

      Sometimes if my thyroid hormone is low my joints hurt. I need to make an appointment with a doctor (I'll go to a psychiatrist at a later date).
