Summer is here and with it comes unpredictable weather. In the event of a closure on the riverside of the property due to lightning in the area, visitors will be offered two new program options beginning in July:
• “Virtual” Estates Tour and Lecture – $5 upgrade
An expert Site Historian will present an engaging lecture on the history of the property, accompanied by a special presentation of historic and modern photographs. This “virtual” tour of the homes and gardens will take place in the new theater area of the museum and includes each stop on the Complete Estates Audio Tour. Duration: Approximately 45 minutes.
• Inside the Lab Tour – $10 upgrade
Visitors will have a unique opportunity to enter the Edison Botanic Research Corporation Laboratory and tour “behind the scenes,” walking in the footsteps of Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Harvey Firestone! An expert historian will guide a small group through the structure, discussing the international importance of this laboratory and the ground-breaking research that occurred here. Duration: Approximately 45 minutes.
