See Edison's lab where amazing breakthrough in electrical, film, and audio recording were advanced. His office looks just as it would a century ago. Also tour his home nearby. Worth half a day

You will be totally immersed in a world of innovation. I got a real sense for how Edison lived his life. A bed in the library so he could sleep without leaving the property. A scroll desk that was locked at his death and reopened and displayed as he left it was very interesting to see. He even had a whole area filled with every imaginable product so his men would not have to wait for an exotic order and hold up inventions. I went twice in one week because I needed more time.

Thomas Edison's house is chock full of his stuff.Much to see and hear the history behind this inventive man. (to coin a phrase) I was in the first building to have electricity in LA of course it was by Edison. That motivated me to learn more about the man behind it all. An excellent informative tour.

This was well worth the three hours that we spent there. It was so very, very interesting and well presented.
