Very small but very good! It was only one floor but very interesting on how Thomas Eddison changed our world. We were there for 45 minutes and at no time was there anyone on duty at the desk. I'm sure we were being watch on camera some were but would have been nice to been able to ask someone questions.

As of April 8, 2014, the website displays incorrect hours of operation for the Edison Museum. It is actually only open from Tuesday to Friday from 9 AM to 2 PM, and Saturdays from 10 AM to 2 PM. I had to find this out the hard way. The actual museum was okay. It was a room filled with many... More

This little museum is free and has some great examples from Thomas Edison on what he contributed to our modern day life. Good learning experience for kids too.

For a small museum, this place really is chocked full of Edison displays and pieces. It is amazing how much his intelligent mind did for us. I didn't know he had over a thousand patents! There are hands on items to try, and couple of computer activities that our kindergartener especially enjoyed. I also liked reading the free literature which... More

My son enjoyed walking through the museum. We learned a lot of neat things, and it has interactive displays. The docent was very nice, and informative also.

For a small museum there is a lot of information and items here. They had a special display inside on different christmas lights throughout several decades. Great education the kids that isn't overwhelming or too much at one time.

It is a small museum. If you just want something to do and for it to not take a lot of time, this would work. It is very interactive. I would definitely bring elementary and middle school aged children here. It isn't too big to where they would become disinterested. And there's plenty of switches and the like for them... More

We make field trips here all the time. The museum is very informational, has a lot of different items relating to Edison and his career, and hands on items for the kids. Very well kept, very clean, and nice folks at the front.
