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 Edison Drive in Milan, Ohio (near Exit 118 of the Ohio Turnpike).
Telephone (419) 499-2135.

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.
