Beginning on Saturday, March 12, 2022, Thomas Edison National Historical Park will no longer accept cash as a method of payment for entrance fees or the purchase of park passes. Visitors may use a credit or debit card at the park visitor center to pay their entrance fee or they can purchase their entrance passes ahead of their visit using the recreation.gov website or mobile app.
Implementing a cash-free system reduces the contact and wait time at the visitor center especially during peak visitor hours, thus increasing the time for visitors to enjoy the park. For even greater convenience, visitors are encouraged to use the recreation.gov website and mobile app to purchase their entrance passes ahead of time and either print out their passes at home or save to their mobile device to present at the park visitor center.
WHEN: Thomas Edison National Historical Park is currently on a winter closure but will re-open to the public on March 12, 2022.
WHERE: Thomas Edison National Historical Park, 211 Main St., West Orange
ADMISSION: Entrance fees to the park are $15.00 for all visitors ages 16 and older. Children under 16 are free of charge. National Park Passes are accepted for park admission. Park entrance fee payments are by Credit or Debit Card only. Visitors may purchase entrance passes ahead of their visit through recreation.gov.
