Trace the history of the auto and our fascination with it along with other American inventions through the staggering collection of Henry Fords estate, which includes such memorabilia as the chair Abraham Lincoln sat in when he was assassinated and the limo in which John F. Kennedy was shot.

This is definitely NOT a car museum, which is what I thought. Henry Ford was quite a quirky guy, as the exhibits amassed in this large museum will testify, i.e., an airstream trailer used by Ford, Thomas Edison and another friend during annual campouts, Lincoln's...More

This museum is excellent. Many people might think its just about cars but that is not the case. Lots of history on automobiles but so much more. Trains and planes also. The diner was a plus and food was great.
