The Benjamin Franklin House will be taking part in the London-wide 'Museums at Night' event, and opening up its doors so people can see the spooky Craven Street Bones.
As well as being home to one of America's Founding Fathers, the Benjamin Franklin House was also home to an early anatomy school -- and there's still a load of bones buried beneath the floor!
How did the bodies get there? And did Benjamin Franklin have an inkling that he was living above a burial pit?
Beth Ward will explore these questions, and reveal the darker side of the 18th century...
In case you don't know who Benjamin Franklin is (you really need to pay more attention at school!), he acted as a middle-man between the British government and the colonies, and later as a representative of the newly independent America, helping to draft the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. He also fancied himself as a bit of an inventor, and was responsible for bifocal glasses (thanks Ben) and the urinary catheter (...thanks a bunch, Ben!).
Craig has been to see this place himself, and written a review of the Benjamin Franklin House on his blog.
