WOW! The tour was a real hands on historic learning pleasure. Visited over 30 years ago and this is still just as exciting and fascinating.

Very lovely grounds to walk and explore. The trees, flowers, river views and homes are stunning. The guided audio tour awesome and very informative. This is a perfect way to spend a couple hours learning a piece of our history.

Visited the park during our trip to Florida and visit to Edison & Ford Winter houses. You can see all the plants and trees planted by Edison in the search for cheap rubber source during the beginning of 20th century.

Wish they let you walk the property without buying a ticket for a tour of the home. We did not have enough time to do the tour but would have liked to walk around the property .

I really enjoyed the trees there. The whole park is wonderful. You have a hand held radio that explains all of the exhibits to you. You can take your time. I would go again.

This is an attraction with beautiful grounds and a museum. Because Thomas Edison spent his winters here, there is huge historical significance. You can tour the main house, the auto shed/garage, the laboratory, the gardens, and see the lights (in winter). There is a small...More
