I thought it was just me, since Edison is one of my heroes. But I took my parents there when they were visiting, and they could not stop talking about it. I mentioned it to some new friends at a cocktail party the next weekend, and they told me how great it was at the next cocktail party.
This is a really great NPS site. There is more-than-adequate parking (look for the signed lot across the street). The admission fee is $7, and it's good for a week. The self-guided tour is fine, but it is really worthwhile to go to the ranger-led sessions. They give you a lot more background than the self-guided tour.
I never get tired of visiting the lab. I found the house tour very interesting the first time, and less interesting each time I go. It is a really impressive house, tho.
