Construction is done! The monument is worth the few minutes drive off the highway. $5 to have guided tour through Thomas Edison's life. We had a very good time.

Currently is under construction. Covered in scaffolding. We spoke with someone at the museum and it will not be finished until 2014.

Was still under construction in March 2015. Fenced up. No info booth on a Friday. It was a cute fun 5 min stop right off the highway.

Edison became famous for patenting inventions that were not his own. My money is better spent donating to Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe where real genius was at work
