Henry Ford is without question one of the most iconic figures in American industrial history, and during his time he was one of the wealthiest and most famous individuals on the planet. Prior to the mass production of the Ford Model T, which was introduced in October of 1908, automobile ownership was the exclusive domain of the wealthy because they were made individually by hand. Ford revolutionized the industry through the development of the assembly line technology that fueled production of the Model T, and the rest, as they say, is history.
And speaking of the history, there is a wealth of it to be found these days at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. It is a must-see attraction for classic car fans, but there is truly something for everyone of all ages at the Henry Ford Museum. Exhibits at the museum include Automobile In American Life, Dymaxion House (R. Buckminster Fuller architecture), Heroes of the Sky (early aviation), Presidential Limousines, With Liberty and Justice for All, and many more. The Ford Museum also features an Imax theater, incredible shopping, the Greenfield Village experience, and the Ford Rouge Factory Tour.
You will never forget your visit to the Henry Ford Museum, a 360° montage of history, entertainment, education, and plain old fashioned fun for the entire family!
