It is great how authentically everything has been preserved. Hands on exhibits great for kids and the outside plant life and trees are as interesting as the science and technology inside.

This neighborhood surrounds the Edison/Ford Estate and can be walked-amazing homes and the Edison Church-beautiful landscaping brought to Ft Myers by Edison for his work in his lab. Spend the morning at the Edison/Ford Museum, walk through the surrounding neighborhood and head to Pinchers for a late lunch or early dinner.

This is part of the Edison/Ford Summer Homes. See the detail above. The building structures and the history of the place itself.

The grounds surrounding the Edison-Ford Winter Home Museum is worthy of your time. Just lovely to see all the exotic trees brought here by Thomas Edison, not to mention the Caloosahatchee River flowing alongside the estate. Very peace filled with many different species of flowers and bushes.

I was surprised about most of information of two outstanding persons used to live there. I mean Edison and Ford. I don't know they were friends and Ford even worked for Edison. Park is awesome, and we were lucky about a weather.

Lots of shady trees, benches and a spectacular view of the great waters. Nice that it is by the Edison and Ford Winter Estates

the grounds, the cottages and the history make this a special experience. Not inexpensive though for tickets. But worth the price.
