Henry Ford Museum: 17 Must-See Exhibits

In 1929 Henry Ford established the Edison Institute, a collection of artifacts and stories that we know today as The Henry Ford, located in Dearborn, near Detroit Michigan. Ford collected these artifacts with the belief that they hold the power to fuel the future by informing the innovators of today. These artifacts serve as a salute to America – the “Innovation Nation” – by telling the stories of great inventors, leaders, and trailblazers who came before us and allow us to connect with them in ways we would never be able to in textbooks. Through an unparalleled collection of national historic artifacts known as the Archive of American Innovation, guests engage with the past in powerful ways and become inspired to change the future.

Today The Henry Ford Museum is the largest indoor outdoor museum complex in Michigan including the museum, Greenfield Village, Ford’s Rouge Factory Tour, and an immersive giant screen experience in an IMAX theater. It’s the perfect place to host an event, go on a school field trip, or just spend a chilly or rainy day during fall in Michigan. No matter the reason for planning your visit, here’s everything you need to know about and see at The Henry Ford.
