Good Morning,
Can someone tell me, how far is the walking distance from 30th street station to the Franklin Institute.
When we get off the train, where should we go...
Directions please.
Would like to know b/c too much walking is difficult....
thanks so much

walk directly east on JFK (straight out of the main entrance), continue to 20th St (first street you will encounter). take a left and walk two blocks. maybe 15 minute walk?

Go to Google Maps - https://www.google.com/maps/dir///@4...71.3498109,13z

Input your start and destination points, then select the option that shows walking.

Really not that hard.

It's a 20 minute walk medium pace. If walking is an issue, just take a taxi from 30th street.

If you're able-bodied, and it's nice day, you might enjoy the walk. It's pretty flat terrain. Not hilly.

It's not as far as it might look on Google maps. You walk out the eastern entrance of 30th St Station, go east on JFK Blvd( which will be right in front of you) and turn left on 20th St. You will cross Arch and Cherry Sts. The very next street is Race St, cross Race, and Franklin Inst will be on your left.

Can also take the Trolley from 30th st to 22nd or 19th street, and walk up from there. Not sure it would save you much time though.
