The story.

We spent the day at the Henry Ford Museum. It is next door to Greenfield Village we spent the day at yesterday.

This is an indoor museum under 12 acres. The museum began has Henry ford's personal collection of Historic objects he began collecting as far back as 1906. It is not just a car collection there is antique machinery, aircraft, locomotives and many historical items.

Highlights or the "must-sees" are Rosa Parks bus, Kennedy and Reagan's Limousines, Lincoln Chair, the Allegheny Locomotive, 1939 DC-3, Ford's Quadricycle and the massive building itself.

It's a wonderful museum for any age to enjoy. It is hard to believe that one man had the vision and money to put this together. This was definitely a highlight of our trip and would recommend it to anyone that is able to spend some time here.

Hopefully, our pictures will you a little insight of what is housed here.

We were wanting to also take the F150 assembly plant tour today. Just not enough time to do both. We will do that tomorrow.
