We have selected The Electric Franklin as the world's very best website on Benjamin Franklin.

The Electric Franklin website is part of the website, published by the Independence Hall Association, a non-profit organization founded in 1942, based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. The aim of the Electric Franklin website is to bring Ben Franklin to a world audience in a colourful, engaging way, using primary source material, narratives, activities, interactive games, streaming videos, and images.

The website is organized into the following main sections: Biographies (containing four different biographies and timelines), Science, Philadelphia, In His Own Words, Temple's Diary (a work of historical fiction by one of the world's leading Franklin scholars), Fun & Games, and More (which contains essays and articles about Benjamin Franklin by academics and journalists).
