Thomas Edison Center at Menlo Park Reviews

From the former remained only the foundations of several buildings and samples of "inventions" Edison. Rather, in most cases, it is not fully an invention, but rather "driven to the mind" of other people's ideas. As for example it was with an incandescent lamp. Well, it doesn't matter. There is something to see. There is something to learn and will even be surprised. The museum is not big, only two small rooms. But you can listen to the phonograph Edison (original). The Small souvenir Shop (here) where it is possible to buy souvenirs on memory from pencils to authentic drums for a phonograph in the original packing.
price is $5 a person. Great guide! He was very knowledgeable. He spoke loudly enough for everyone to hear. Great day. more »
We were visiting New Jersey and had a few hours before we could check into our hotel and since the museum was close by, we decided to check it out. We went on a Saturday and it seems like they might only have guided tours on Saturdays which was great because the museum is really tiny. I think if you just walked in and perused the exhibits it wouldn't be as interesting. Chuck, our amazing tour guide, really brought Thomas Edison's life story and inventions to life. It was very educational and interesting and fun and I recommend it if you're in the area.
Very nice place to hang out.. Very inspiring.. really liked the park around.. good place for half a day activities.. Check out the timings before heading there.
