A SOLD OUT CROWN OF 200 GUESTS CELEBRATED FRANKLIN'S BIRTHDAY IN ELECTRIC FASHION!
A big thank you to all the visitors and volunteers who made Ben Franklin's 311th birthday his best yet!
Another outstanding, engaging and “electric” day at the Printing Museum as nearly 200 guests gathered to celebrate Benjamin Franklin’s 311th Electric Birthday! The day was filled with special tours, hands-on printing of keepsakes, birthday cake and special appearances by Washington, Jefferson, John & Abigail Adams and Madam Brillon, not to mention two shows by the good Dr. Franklin himself. A comment from one of our many guests:
"I would like to thank you and your museum staff for a wonderful family day! Wow, I am so thankful that we took the time to drive to Carson today! All three of my childrenhad a wonderful time; I asked them what they liked best, they said “All of it!”. We spent an entire hour just exploring the museum and making prints! My son was especially pleased to be chosen to help Mr Franklin conduct an Electric Experiment and I know he will remember it always! Mr Franklin was interesting, informative and entertaining! Thank you for giving us the chance to explore history, printing and best of all, to “Pull the Devil’s Tail”!
