Laboratory Tours

The following tours were developed in the early 2000s, and consist of two sets of stops inside of the Main Laboratory (Building 5) and the courtyard of the laboratory. The standard main tour guides guests through the laboratory room by room, and the in-depth tour stops go into further detail about certain inventions, rooms, and Edison himself. The family tour, only available in English, has a more lighthearted approach, and is delivered by one of Mr. Edison's laboratory assisstants, Frankie. All of the tours have transcripts available. As tours come online, their links will activate below.
