The Henry Ford Museum - Fun, Educational, and Memorable

Remember to "Pin" this post so you can share it with others.


Henry Ford Museum

We decided to take a mini vacation to Dearborn, MI, to visit The Henry Ford Museum. I love when we go somewhere that is both fun and educational.

There was so much to see at this museum. In fact, it took us about 2 1/2 hours to see everything.

Some of the things you'll see include machinery, cars, and airplanes from the 1800s and beyond; equipment from the Industrial Age, layouts of the inside of homes from different eras including all of the materials used during that time; steam trains; and so much more.

The bus Rosa Parks rode.
They had an exhibit about Abraham Lincoln, who happens to be my favorite President.

A lot of the exhibits include recordings about the particular person or event you are viewing.

Have children who love trains? Then they will enjoy this section of the museum.
There was even a model train layout in which one of the trains had a camera attached to it so that people could see themselves on a TV monitor in front of the display as the train went by.

I was particularly fascinated by the information about the presidential limousines.

The price for admission to the museum is $17.00 for adults, and $12.50 for youth ages 5 - 12.

If you, too, enjoy educational vacations, then this is one place you'll want to visit. For those of you who have visited the museum, I'd love to read about your experience in the comment section below.
