The Henry Ford is a place like no other. It is a place filled with once-in-a-life time experiences. It consist of a Museum, Greenfield Village, the Rouge factory and the Edsel Estate, but these only touch the surface of this experience.
Also are a Model T ride, the world’s largest steam locomotive, the Wright Brothers bicycle shop (where they made their first airplane) Thomas Edison lab, the actual bus that Rosa Parks rode, the limousine JFK was riding in that dark day in ovember,1963, the chair that Abraham Lincoln was sitting in when shot by John Wilkes Booth, Henry Ford’s first home, and the list goes on of the exciting things that you will be seeing.
Coming to the Henry Ford is like stepping into a giant encyclopedia. The Henry Ford is about history, but it’s about the future too!
All the activities of the Henry Ford are included with your tour. You will visit the Museum, tour the Ford F-110 production facility, visit Greenfield Village, and enjoy lunch using your $10.00 meal coupon. You can also visit Noah Webster and Robert Frost homes, George Washington Carver’s cabin, a one room school, and many other historic artifacts. Don’t pass up the opportunity to ride the Carousel or take a tour of the village in a Model T.
Another special attraction is “Titanic, The Artifact Exhibition”. Timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the horrific tragedy, the exhibit is filled with hundreds of genuine relics recovered from the Ship.
You will also visit the Edsel and Eleanor Ford estate. Situated on the shores of Lake Superior, this is a prime example of the eloquence of the rich during this troubled time in history.
