Very cute small museum

A very cute small museum, with an actual rail car on property too, and a statue by the river. Lots of good information, and in the off season, open on Sat and Sun only.

I have visited the museum twice and enjoyed both visit. I is a nice place to take children because it is small and most children won't get bored. The also have some hands on displays to keep them interested.

Our guide Dave was a wealth of knowledge & a great guy all around. This tour depicts Thomas Edison's beginnings, his family in Port Huron & the effect he had on the community. Fascinating stuff. Try to stump Dave!!

I could view the railcar and the depot from the outside only. There was a sign on the door giving the hours of operation--basically only a few hours on Saturdays and Sundays... More

Did not know that Thomas Edison lived in Port Huron. Doesn't cost much to visit the museum and it is well worth it. Convenient location next to the Double Tree Hotel.

We took some babies under 1 and there was just enough room for the stroller, the adults had more fun than the kids but there was some pretty cool stuff to see. Family admission was a good price and we learned a ton. There is a phonograph (spelling?) and you can listen to it if you ask the docent. It... More
