  • A wonderful experience visiting the immaculately kept grounds. Views to the river are breathtaking! Curators did a fantastic job with the furnishings in the homes. Many articles are original! The homes are beautifully kept and you really feel like you stepped back in time. I liked it so much that I became a member!

  • Traveled over 2 hours yesterday to take my son here for educational purposes. They sold us tickets & as soon as we walked across the street to see the house we were told they were shutting it down due to the weather that was coming. We waited for about 3 hours to we finally left. Very disappointed & to me they rip people off. Why would you keep selling tickets to people if you are closing the property up cause the weather? They do not refund either!! She said we can come back within 7 days told her that is impossible since we live in a different state & were leaving the next day. Extremely upsetting to actually burn $$$ that you work hard for, for ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!! Waste of $$$$ & time all the way around!!!! They need to NOT SELL TICKETS WHEN THEY KNOW THEY ARE GONNA SHUT IT DOWN CAUSE OF WEATHER!!! UPDATE: A woman from the estate emailed me & we were corresponding back and forth when she told me a woman that was from their corporate office was going to call me. Never happened!! That was 6 months ago still have heard nothing from them.

  • First, the lady at the front desk should have stayed home. What a terrible reception and attitude. How about a nice greeting and a smile. If you don't want to be there, call in sick or get another job. Everybody in our party felt the same way. Secondly, 20 bucks for an adult to enter is ridiculously high. They don't offer veteran discounts and they don't offer senior discounts. Very sad. I am sure both Edison and Ford would have promoted those discounts in a big way. The light show was less than spectacular. I know a nearby neighborhood that has huge light displays, charges zero to go see and all you have to deal with is the traffic jam to see it. That light show was worth the wait in traffic. The Edison and Ford estates were nothing to look at and we made our way through those pretty quick. They only thing worth seeing was the museum and lab and that was not worth 20 bucks. Not worth the money. Maybe if it was 10 bucks. No pics to post as I was not impressed.

  • Historical place to visit while in Fort Myers. Wonderful home at a great location. Guided tour is worth it. This place also had a great collection of antique cars on display when we went. So that was a bonus!

  • Beautiful and well kept gardens. The buildings, museum and lab are wonderful. The parking is across the street from the Estates. A must see.
