The Henry Ford and Greenfield Village is the largest indoor and outdoor museum complex in the United States, and is located in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn. This nine-acre site showcases Henry Ford’s vision of documenting and commemorating items of historical interest relating to America’s history, particularly the Industrial Revolution.
This hugely popular museum is home to a vast collection of artifacts, machinery, memorabilia, and other exhibits that help capture the history and culture of life in early America. Naturally, visitors can trace the history of the automobile industry, along with other American inventions – from race cars and tractors to modular houses and microprocessors.
The collection also includes such memorabilia as the chair in which Abraham Lincoln sat when he was assassinated, plus the presidential limousine that John F. Kennedy was riding in when he was shot. In Greenwood Village, there’s also the Thomas Edison laboratory and the Wright Brothers' bicycle shop, plus there’s a separate factory tour and IMAX theater.
The Henry Ford is located on the corner of Village Road and Oakwood Boulevard in Dearborn, just west of the Southfield Freeway (M-39) and south of Michigan Avenue (US-12).
