FRANKLIN INSTITUTE SPORTS ZONE
The city’s comprehensive science museum is home to a series of cool temporary offerings, like the wildly popular Jurassic World, but its permanent exhibitions are also a consistently fun draw. SportsZone is dedicated to the science of sports and calls for plenty of active participation. Among the 21 interactive experiences, test your balance on a surfboard and analyze your pitch with the help of a high speed camera. Perhaps the most popular activity, come early to avoid the crowds waiting to challenge virtual competitors like Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews or the Philly Phanatic to a 40-foot long race. 222 N. 20th St.
