Museum Matters with Andrew Kercher: Edison’s Myths & Misconceptions

Museum Matters is the perfect mix of education and entertainment. Andrew Kercher brings us tales, treasures, and all the insider knowledge of history in and around the Blue Water Area! From artifacts to anecdotes, this show has it all, and you won’t want to miss a second.

Continuing on from our last episode, Andrew and his guest “Depot” Dave Dazer, site manager at the Thomas Edison Depot Museum – and resident Edison expert – continue sharing their knowledge about Port Huron’s favorite son. This time, Andrew and Dave are diving into the myths and misconceptions surrounding the “wizard of Menlo Park”. Did Edison really steal inventions? What was Edison’s involvement with Topsy the Elephant? Did he really kill a rival inventor for his patent? You’ll have to watch to find out!

Have a hankerin’ for more history? The Port Huron museums are waiting for you! For site hours, current exhibits, and educational programs offered you can visit phmuseums.org! Fancy learning some fun facts?

Enjoy the show, and stay tuned to Blue Water Healthy Living for future episodes of Museum Matters!
