Trace the history of the auto and our fascination with it along with other American inventions through the staggering collection of Henry Fords estate, which includes such memorabilia as the chair Abraham Lincoln sat in when he was assassinated and the limo in which John F. Kennedy was shot.

We loved our visit to The Henry Ford. What a wonderful vision Mr. Ford had for this amazing museum. Highly recommend it to anyone that has the slightest interest in history. The kids will love it. Lots of neat hands on things to do.

More of a collection of stuff than a museum. Airplanes, cars, furniture, signs, etc. It seems like Henry Ford found items that were interesting to him and out them in his museum.

So much history, what a fascinating place to visit!!!! We had a whole day here and a whole day for Greenfield Village! We stayed at HIE Toledo North and drove 48 miles each way for a good location.

We spent one afternoon at the Museum. You could spend days and a lot more money, too as everything costs. The museum had more than cars- furniture, planes, too. You need to get an uber or taxi as outside of Detroit.

What a collection! The ultimate mancave for a collector!!! A hoarders dream!!! There are some very interesting pieces of history accompanied by some very informative boards. A great place to spend the entire day if in Detroit.

Yes, there are benches positioned near the front, and several restaurants where you can take a load off, and fuel up.
