How about taking a trip to celebrate 150 year of a farm boy that rose from oblivion to become the most influential American innovator of the 20th century?
The Henry Ford museum in Dearborn, Michigan, is much more than about vehicles or the Ford family. The captivating beauty of the museum is one piece, while it maintains an outstanding showcase of ideas that have made a significant difference in the world.
You will see John F. Kennedy’s limousine, full size trains, muscle cars, classic cars, a 1952 Wienermobile, as well as, a splendid display of real life buildings displayed via Legos.
Interactive activities for the children include how to make a paper airplane, having their picture taken in a wooden plane, and playing with larger-than-life Legos.
