Franklin Farm

Experience farm life in the middle of Boston! This warm-weather exhibit features a petting zoo, where children can see and touch friendly goats. Explore the brooder building, where newly-hatched chicks keep warm, and visit the chicken coop to greet several species of older chickens. The main barn houses ponies, Guinea hogs, donkeys and goats. And keep an eye peeled for our resident barn cat, Waldo!
