Edison and his experimenters collaboratively filled more than 3500 laboratory notebooks; creating a detailed record of their sketches, notes and ideas for new inventions. The notebooks are tangible reminders of Edison's greatest accomplishment - team-based research and development in well-equipped laboratories devoted to creating new technologies for the benefit of all.
Stand beside him, feel his presence and take your picture with the "Man of the Millennium." There is a bit of Edison in all of us. Don't be afraid to set it free!
