Henry Ford Museum at The Henry Ford

It's in Dearborn, Michigan and very interesting. The chair lincoln was killed in, is there. Also the car kennedy was killed in. But that's just two things, there's much more. There's a 90 acre replica of the "old america" filled with Thomas edison re-creations. Famous and classic cars, early 20th century airplanes, etc. It's been years since I've been there, but plan on going back. I remember how fun it was, and it's definatly worth it. Tons of history here, for the history buffs.

Yes. When I was a kid I lived for 3 years in Battle Creek Michigan and went to the Henry Ford Museum (and to nearby Greenfield Village) several times.

A GREAT museum.

It's probably one of the most underrated places in the country

Absolutely the finest museum of American technological innovation and life in the 19th and early 20th century that I have visited. Although I live some 1,600 miles away, I have been there 4 times and plan to return. WELL worth the trip.
