The Thomas Edison Birthplace is re-opening on Thursday, May 13th.

Tours are by appointment only.

Our hours for May will be Thursday-Sunday, 12PM-5PM.


We have been hard at work building a fast, user-friendly online booking system. The online booking system is through PurplePass and can be found on our website. There is no need to leave, or open new tabs, as everything is built into our website for your convenience. 

You will be able to select your date, time, ticket types & quantity. Our system is RSVP so payment will not take place until you get to the museum.

If you have any questions, please email us at
