"We had a great, detailed tour of the house and were given a good history lesson on the family. The guide was patient and able to answer all questions. The price was very good and the visit was well worth the time. If you like History, stop in and check it out."

Thomas Alva Edison, inventor of the phonograph, the incandescent light bulb, and many other devices that make our lives fuller and simpler, was born in Milan, Ohio, in 1847. The Edison Birthplace Museum features a collection of rare Edisonia, including examples of many of Edison’s early inventions, documents, and family mementos. The Birthplace is open February through December and is located at 9 North Edison Drive in Milan, Ohio (near Exit 118 of the Ohio Turnpike). Visit, learn about how this great man grew up and began the Age of Invention.

The Edison Birthplace was opened by his wife Mina and his daughter Madeleine as a tribute to the humble beginnings of a great man. The Edison Birthplace Museum is the only Edison site to have family involved, including great-grand children and a great-great-great-great niece on the Board of Trustees, and a great-great-great nephew as President.

The Edison Birthplace is supported solely by private donations and admission fees — no governmental funds. To help us continue to tell the many stories of the Birthplace Museum, explaining how Thomas Edison became a great inventor, and how his work can be an ongoing inspiration to young Americans, please support the museum with a donation.
