Treat Your Favorite Niece or Nephew to This Exhibit, Now Considered a Rite of Passage in Philly

For more than half a century, walking through the Giant Heart has been a rite of passage for children in Philadelphia. No visit to The Franklin Institute would be complete without visiting the icon that generations love with all their hearts! Learn how to keep your heart in tip-top shape as you explore this 5,000-square foot exhibition.

You'll gain new insights into the anatomy and physiology of the human body through interactive exhibits that emphasize the importance of exercise, healthy diet, and maintaining a balanced lifestyle. Watch open heart surgery or find out how much blood is in your body. Crawl through a giant artery or see a how a human skeleton works as it runs.

This exhibit is a celebration of the heart—inside the human body and inside The Franklin Institute—and we think you’ll love it with all your heart, too! At The Franklin Institute, we help people understand science and technology in ways that empower them to make decisions about critical issues that affect their lives. We look forward to seeing you there!

At U City Flats, the premier apartments in the University City neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
