President’s Update ~ Chris Pendleton, President & CEO

Posted by Edison Ford Winter Estates On June 27th


president report     We know that in the summer months, we have lots of visiting family groups including our Florida travelers and  international visitors. This summer, the new tours will be a “must do” for local families as well as traveling visitors.

     At a glance our summer family programs include:

     Sundays – Inside the Lab and Hands-on Museum Tour that includes up-close information in the Edison Botanical Research Laboratory and hands-on activities in the Museum.

 Sundays & Mondays – River Cruise and Tour includes a one hour cruise of the Caloosahatchee and audio tour of the site and museum.

Tuesdays – Afternoon curator talks with visiting Curator John Kurdyla and Edison Ford Conservator of the Phonograph Collection Jim Niccum. Come listen and make music.

 Thursdays – Behind-the-Scenes Tour with Edison Ford Curators inside the homes and lab.

 Saturdays – Edison Ford Mucker/Young Inventor’s Tours focus on the inventions of Edison and Ford with hands-on activities for all ages.

      Summer activities at Edison Ford are generally weather directed. With the improvements in the Museum and even more focus on hands-on science, there is always a way to shift the schedule to accommodate the storms. It is always good to call and speak to a staff member on the day of your visit and check out our website for options www.edisonfordwinterestates.org. Be sure to request the Student Quiz.
