The Franklin Institute’s Franklin Hall where your reception is held has a beautiful historic and classic feel. It feels immense and grand with tis gorgeous high domed ceiling which also allows for beautiful uplighting. You ceremony can be on the 5th Floor Roof Deck with the city skyline as a backdrop or it can be held in the Planetarium with a beautiful stary sky above. Catering is offered in house and the venue’s maximum capacity is 450 guests. A state of the art lighting and audio-visual package was installed that now vividly enhances the impact of the hall and an amazing time for your guests.
