During the self-guided tour of his laboratory complex you feel a part of the creativity and inventiveness that “changed our world forever”!

  1. Very odd . . . it looks a lot (almost exactly, but probably not) like Edison’s lab in Greenfield Village (Dearborn, MI).

    Nice photos of the machines and old artifacts.

  2. I love places like this, they are so interesting and as I look at your photos I wonder what I would have done. I am inspired by your images and it has sent a new ball rolling in my head. Thanks Bonnie
