About the Museum

The Museum's mission is to educate the public on the inventions and life story of the inventor.

Among the various Edison artifacts, visitors will also find items chronicling the history of electrical power in Southeast Texas and Louisiana. Photos from this period provide a glimpse into the past and offer valuable information about how the world developed.

The Edison Museum remains a vital institution in the Beaumont area. The non-profit organization is made possible by generous grants from Entergy. Together these companies are able to reach a wide range of people, providing them with a look into America’s past. It is our hope that the photographs we have provided to the Portal to Texas History will help spread that message worldwide.

In the words of Thomas Edison, “If our work has widened the horizon of man’s understanding and given even a little measure of happiness in this world, I am content.”
