Families will find an able guide to the Benjamin Franklin Museum in Skuggs the Squirrel. Franklin delighted in pet squirrels, or skuggs as they were known in his day. Skuggs will provide clues for families exploring the museum on the path of curiosity, the path of a hard worker, or the path of a team player. Make sure you bring your camera for this family adventure.
