  • This small memorial is well worth your time. Staff is very well-versed on Edison's life and inventions. They are very proud of the "wizard of Menlo park" contributions. This site is small and mighty a...  read more »

  • Don't be fooled by the small building. The museum is full of interesting photos and inventions by Edison. They play 3 Edison Phonographs for you which was amazing. The tour guides are extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Edison and are happy to answer any questions you may have. Our guide stayed after the museum closed to answer more of our questions.
  • Inspiring! I visited this place in the month of May '15. Though the place is not very vast, the wide range of Edison inventions and the original instruments one gets to see in this small place is a treat by itself! The guides were very passionate about their work and did a fantastic job in giving us a good tour, accommodating our late entry (just half hour before closing time). The trail surrounding this place is good too, for a short walk
  • This place has a ton of local history! Great place to go and learn a little about Mr. Edison! Also a short little nature trail to a baseball field is on site!
  • For such a historic site, I would have expected something more. Thomas Edison's workshop was taken whole to Detroit by Henry Ford and what wasn't taken went to Orange in a museum. There's very little left here in Edison.
  • Monument is nice but there should be more visible information (and a path)
