NOTICE: The riverside botanical gardens, Museum Store, and Garden Shoppe will be open 7 days a week from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.! The museum and lab will reopen on July 1, 2020.

Every Fort Myers Beach vacation should include a trip to the Edison and Ford Winter Estates! Visitors can take a guided or self-guided tour and enjoy the 15,000-square-foot museum filled with hundreds of inventions and artifacts, the botanic research laboratory -- a National Historic Chemical Landmark -- and the Smithsonian Spark!Lab where kids and parents alike can be inventors! The site includes more than 20 acres of botanical gardens with plants and trees from all over the world that bloom throughout the year in sunny Fort Myers.

Please visit the website for more information on the estates including a wide array of events, educational classes and workshops!
