Free Admission Weekend for Southwest Florida Teachers


Edison & Ford Winter Estates is offering teachers free admission October 28-29. Teachers are invited to be some of the first visitors to experience the new Smithsonian Spark!Lab exhibit.  The offer will be extended to teachers in public and private schools, principals and support staff in Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. 

The Smithsonian Spark!Lab is a hands-on, interactive exhibit for families and children. A series of rotating stations with themes from vehicle construction to understanding sound waves will challenge visitors to place themselves in the mindset of an inventor.

Another new exhibit in the museum is the Timeline of Innovation. It's a chronological exhibit of both Edison's and Ford's major inventions. The timeline highlights achievements in dozens of fields and showcases some of the most interesting artifacts. It also depicts how Edison, Ford, and others built on earlier innovations to create their own inventions.

This offer cannot be combined with other discounts and excludes river cruise or other specialty packages.
