The Henry Ford Museum

This was a fantastic place!  We opened and closed the place. We arrived at 9:30 and left at 5:00.  We went to the Greenfield Village first which was like stepping back in time. 

Rich was thrilled with the trains and we rode a couple of times around the park on it.  There were so many things to see-old equipment and craftspeople and houses with everything the way it was in the early 1600, 1700, and 1800s. 

We had a fantastic lunch at the Eagle Tavern which used to be a stop for people traveling by horse and carriage.  The tables were very tiny and the waiters in period dress. Rich had a sasparilla soda with a straw that was uncooked pasta.

We spent the afternoon in the museum which was just as interesting.  We saw the car that Kennedy was shot in and the chair that Lincoln was shot in.  There were airplanes and dining cars and old campers that were fun to look at.

We laughed at how many items were from New England.  There was a house from Andover CT and a post office from Phoenixville, CT. 

If you ever get the chance to visit, don't pass it up. 

Tomorrow we're heading towards Traverse City.  

Stay tuned...

  1. Very cool! Looks like the ride to Traverse City from Dearborn is no hop, skip and a jump. Very jealous in the Hill.
