  • The website said trails so we were hoping for more of a walk. The trails were pretty and a short walk led to an over grown pond. It was a bit muddy since we have had so much rain. Others have said the...  more »

  • By visiting this place you will realize that Edison was not only a great inventor but also a facilitator of globalizaton. The institution of research and development originated here. Well informed guides. Its space is small and can not accomodate more than 20 persons. A nice trail is accessible from here. Picnic tables and one unisex restroom. Limited parking lots.
  • There probably is no greater inventor on the list of greatest inventors of all time in our lives. Each and everyday you wake you have benefited from one of Thomas Alva Edisons greatest inventions the light bulb. This facility was recently renovated by donations from we the people and is a living testament to “The Wizard of Menlo Park". Located just a short distance ( less than a mile from the exits for the Garden State Parkway and Metropark Train Station you can stop by any time. There is a picnic area there as well as a small museum and gift shop. A little look into the life of Thomas Edison and you will be simply amazed at the many things he invented that still touch our lives everyday.
  • Great place to be , it's is the origin of Light,Radio, DC Electric Current , but the such a historic place was very normal with only one Garage Size Box of small Room where only Few of Edison's Inventions were Displayed , and may where tacked to Michigan by His fried Henry Ford to his Laboratory
  • The museum was closed when we went, so we couldn't go further than the parking lot. Very nice, though. Hopefully, we'll make it back when they are open.
  • It's not a big place to enjoy with your family. It us just Edison tower and small office and limited parking. This is the place where Edison had worked.
