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.
I had a chance to visit the museum while in the area doing work at the Warner Robbins Air Base. The collection has grown and it’s definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
This was one of the first museums where I took photos with an early digital camera.

This is a great opportunity to see artifacts as they are being restored. Sometimes restoration is quick and sometimes you see things before they are put into storage.
