Not large but very informational. Kids and historians will love the place and it only takes about 30-45 minutes to visit. Great setting right near lake and lighthouse.

A very cute small museum, with an actual rail car on property too, and a statue by the river. Lots of good information, and in the off season, open on Sat and Sun only.

I have visited the museum twice and enjoyed both visit. I is a nice place to take children because it is small and most children won't get bored. The also have some hands on displays to keep them interested.

Our guide Dave was a wealth of knowledge & a great guy all around. This tour depicts Thomas Edison's beginnings, his family in Port Huron & the effect he had on the community. Fascinating stuff. Try to stump Dave!!

Did not know that Thomas Edison lived in Port Huron. Doesn't cost much to visit the museum and it is well worth it. Convenient location next to the Double Tree Hotel.

This is a small place with information about Edison who used to live in the area. It was well done in a visual manner with some videos which were also well done If you are in the area worth visiting.

Thomas Edison lived in Port Huron as a boy before he became a famous inventor. He was known to have sold papers on the train running between Port Huron and Detroit. The museum has similar rail cars on display.
