Experience History & Innovation
The Henry Ford Museum |
A hallmark of manufacturing and innovation, The Henry Ford Museum began in 1906 as a personal collection of Henry Ford’s historic artifacts. Today, it is a 9-acre showcase located in Dearborn — just outside of Detroit — and is a National Historic Landmark. Henry Ford’s vast collection consists of antique machinery, pop culture items, automobiles, locomotives, aircraft and other items. It is a remarkable destination that lets you experience the breakthroughs and discoveries that made our world what it is today.
Check out the bus on which Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat, the car John F. Kennedy was assassinated in and the chair from the Ford’s Theater that President Abraham Lincoln was sitting in when he was shot. Come face-to-face with some of our country’s most iconic historical artifacts at the museum at The Henry Ford. Be sure to also visit Greenfield Village, the outdoor history museum at The Henry Ford.
