A collection of Edison memorabilia such as historic light bulbs, phonographs, dynamos and portions of Edison's electric train test track. Tours are available for free but the Edison Tower Memorial Corporation recommends you donate at least $5.00 per person.

Edison Tower was just recently renovated and the updated decor and refinishing has brought back the original charm of this venue that I remember as a kid.

Since, we were in the area, how could we not! Went at night to see it light up. Basically like any picture you see but, in person was fun. They also had a light bulb fixture (not lit up) across the street.
