Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village

Growing up in Michigan I have wonderful memories of visiting the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. The museum is 523,000 square feet of almost everything you can imagine from giant steam trains to the chair President Lincoln was shot in, Rosa parks bus, and the car that carried President Kennedy through Dallas.

Greenfield Village is an outdoor living history museum taking up 90 acres of a 240-acre site. Many of the buildings are original and were moved here by Henry Ford such as the Wright Brothers bicycle shop and home and Henry Ford’s birthplace. On the property is also an exact replica of Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park Complex.

It is an incredible and wonderous place even as an adult.
