Benjamin Franklin House**2FOR1 offer is not available Monday - Tuesday**
The House’s main visitor offer, the Historical Experience show provides a unique experience, using the historic rooms that Franklin inhabited as a stage: blending live performance, sound, lighting and visual projection to tell the rich story of Franklin’s London years in his own words. The main character, Polly Hewson, daughter of Franklin’s landlady who became a ‘second daughter’ to Franklin, accompanies visitors through the House, as they experience a sense of the complexity of the man and the times in which he lived: food, health, botany, and daily living; social and personal relationships; scientific work and musical inventions; political tensions, triumphs and woes and a hurried return to America in the face of the looming War of Independence.

Spanish Flu Exhibition: 21 September 2018 – 16 June 2019
Building on Florence Nightingale’s work during the Crimean war, WW1 ushered in a new era for nursing. Women from all walks of life were filled with a desire to serve their country. But in 1918, as WW1 approached its end, nothing could have prepared them for what was to come – the deadly Spanish Flu.
Infecting up to half of the world’s population, the death toll from this lethal pandemic far outstripped that of the war, with victims suffering from often terrifying and gruesome symptoms. A type of Avian Influenza, which is still a danger today, there was no cure for Spanish Flu, and doctors were at a loss to know how to prevent or treat it. Good nursing was the only thing that helped and therefore it was typically women that bore the brunt of trying to halt this deadly killer.
Journey back in time to a field hospital in 1918 and explore the experiences of those that lived and died during the deadliest pandemic in human history, and discover if a similarly devastating pandemic could happen again today.
