Small, quaint, free. Interesting information about Edison. Some interactive displays for the kids. I enjoyed looking at pictures of him and learning more about him.

A small museum but it has well thought out exhibits and great content. There are some great hands-on activities like the Morse code exhibit.

Small but powerful. (that's a pun) No kidding it is a small space. But framed full of information about electricity; specifically about the early use of electricity in Beaumont. Parking in the lot across the street.

I took my 2 grandkids to see this small but vastly informative museum and they had a great time. The computer that translates a typed message into morse code was a big hit with my 9 & 11 yr. olds. My grandson was cutting a...More
