Student art on display at the Benjamin Franklin House

Published: Monday 28th of July 2008

Benjamin Franklin House in London is currently showcasing a collection of work by students from a local school inspired by Mr Franklin himself.

Students from The Mount School were provided with the topic of Franklin's Creativity and given useful background information and ideas to inspire their artistic endeavours.

Franklin was not only one of the founding fathers of the US, having signed all four documents that created the new nation, he was also a writer, an inventor, a philosopher and a great exponent of the ideas that forged the Age of Enlightenment.

He lived in the house, at 36 Craven Street in the heart of the capital, for sixteen years. The museum includes a student science centre and a scholarship centre.

London Pass holders can receive entry to Benjamin Franklin House and learn more about the incredible life of this fascinating individual.
