We have not toured the entire estate, because the tour prices are a bit high for us ($25+/person). But when we had out of town guests recently, we elected to tour the museum only ($14/person) and while that admission for a museum-only tour seemed a bit pricey to me, I would say it is worth it. If you are a history buff at all, this place is heaven. So much to see, we spent over 3 hours there and could have easily stayed longer. The museum is self guided unless you bite the bullet and take the tour as part of the whole package (pricier), which includes the estates, the gardens, etc. but for the museum price, you get to see all the amazing and extensive collections from both Edison and Ford, you learn many details of their personal lives, plus you get to tour the lab, which is interesting, though not quite as fascinating as I expected. We ate lunch at the little food court. Prices were decent, selection was limited, but you do get to dine al fresco, which is wonderful on this beautiful property. Overall, I would recommend it and we will probably go back and invest the $25/person to see the whole estates sometime in the future.
