Great for History Buffs and Beautiful Grounds!

I actually went here in May 2014, but it won't let me choose back that far in the drop down box. I went here with my mother last year and we really enjoyed it. We are both history... read more

I actually went here in May 2014, but it won't let me choose back that far in the drop down box. I went here with my mother last year and we really enjoyed it. We are both history buffs, but didn't even listen to the little handset they gave us, we preferred to just stroll the grounds at our own... More

Fantastic gardens with the Edison and Ford mansions to look round. The Thomas Edison complex is so interesting and you have the best of both worlds with Fords vehicles. The gardens are full of plants from all over the world which Edison brought back from his travels. Both houses are full of artefacts and are a joy to see. The... More

Love the trees decorated by various school children. Enjoyable family addition to Christmas traditions celebrating Jesus birth. The shops always offer something special for everyone.

Edison is really big in lower Fort Myers and the area around is spectacularly fresh and well cared for ,,, A ride through will grab your artistic yard designs

This park is very well kept. It showcases what a park could be and should be. A very enjoyable time was had by all.

What a great way to spend an afternoon. We really enjoyed walking around the park, learning about Edison and the exotic tree species he had brought in from all over the world.

The big tree had a lot of branches all over. It was great to see something like that one. You would never believe that a tree would look like that. It was great.

Our tour guide was very in formative, gave wonderful descriptions of Edison's and Ford's science/inventions and contributions to the world, about their familes lives. House furnishings were described of old or refurbished and what a delight to know so much more about both men.

I enjoyed both the museum and the grounds. I don't think $20 for both is out of line if you enjoy gardens, historic buildings, a river view, and a history museum. I can see where some folks would enjoy the museum and not the grounds, and vice versa.

Near the Edison&Ford house, there is a statue of Edison under a big tree full of branches spreading all over the place, really an incredible view, worth to stop at least for a quick look. Didn't know they are trees planted by this Edison foundation to produce rubber in case of shortage of the substance back in the early XXth... More
