The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, Michigan is a museum that has some amazing pieces in its collection. Among them are the presidential limousines originally produced for presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan in the Driving America section.
Many portions of America’s past are covered at The Henry Ford, as well as the adjacent Greenfield Village, which allows you to take a walk through history. The tickets can seem a bit pricey to some at $22 for adults for just the museum portion, but the collection really is superb. Package deals are available if you have the time to spend at the museum and in the village.
Ari recently attended a reception at The Henry Ford for work and was able to spend some time poking around the Driving America section. From stagecoaches to automobiles to massive train engines, The Henry Ford has a lot to offer. But he was most enamored — of course! — with the camping vehicles they had on display.
It was interesting how much things haven’t really changed, just evolved. Here are a few of the fun things Ari found. If you get a chance, swing through Dearborn and take a stroll through history for yourself!
