It's a lot of fun to see TA Edison's inventions and over the top ideas. But it is so expensive. What not make it more accessible to the average tourist or Floridian? I think it could be much more fun if one didn't have to hand over the house and the kids to gain admittance. But it is a good... More

Edison brought change to Ft. Myers like he did everywhere he went. Seeing Edison during the later stages of his life and seeing his accomplishments in the framework of his vacation home was an excellent way to spend the morning.

The grounds are meticulously taken care of. They homes historical significance has been maintained well. Although you can't go in the homes they've set it up so you can easily view the life style they loved. The mature trees and view are spectacular. Worth seeing as family or couple, or even alone. They offer guided tours or audio tours.

A 'Must Do' when visiting the Fort Myers area. The buildings, grounds and museum are wonderful. Try to get there early in the day as there is so much to see and do. We attended a vintage car show there in February.

The park includes the summer homes of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford on the Calusahatchee River. The houses were somewhat interesting. But you can't go inside.. which might have made the place more interesting. The most interesting aspect for me was the variety of exotic plants, trees and shrubs throughout the estates. The estate has a beautiful setting. It's worth... More

The site emphasizes Edison and is quite a history lesson. The grounds are lovely although I was disappointed to realize that we weren't going to go into the homes as it was a bit nippy out. Instead, we had views of the interiors from the wide verandas that were sufficient. We opted not to have a tour guide because of... More

We were visiting Fort Myers and our friends took us to see the Edison & Ford houses in the Park after dark. Admission was $15/person but well worth the fee. Mr & Mrs. Edison,dressed in period costume, greeted us and welcomed us to their home. The entire park is decked out in beautiful seasonal lights. The houses are all trimmed... More
