On January 20, 1886, Thomas A. Edison purchased Glenmont, an estate containing a 29-room Queen Anne-style mansion in West Orange, New Jersey. Glenmont and the new laboratory he would build nearby now comprise Thomas Edison NHP. Tours area available Friday through Sunday.

By the time he died in 1931, Thomas Edison was one of the most famous men in the world. The holder of more patents than any other inventor in history, Edison had amassed a fortune and achieved glory as the genius behind such revolutionary inventions as sound recording, motion pictures, and electric light.

Tickets for Glenmont house tours are distributed on a first-come first-served basis from the Laboratory Visitor Center starting at 10:00am. A ticketed tour is required for entry into the house.
