Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation

This is a great museum that began as Henry Ford’s personal collection of historic objects, which he began collecting as far back as 1906. Today, the 12 acre site is primarily a collection of antique machinery, pop culture items, automobiles, locomotives, aircraft, and other items.

There are actually two separate areas the Henry Ford Museum (indoors) and Greenfield Village which has historical building and re-enactments of historical activities.

Went looking for the Science Fiction Museum and found that it has been merged into this museum. I had hoped to see the original captain’s chair from the TOS Star Trek and Death Star model from Star Wars. Those items weren’t currently on display but there were other cool things to see. There also was a great Marvel Universe of Superheroes exhibit for an extra fee that was well worth the extra price.
