Henry Ford Museum
Dearborn, MI

Road: I-94

The visionary of our national car culture, Henry Ford was a complicated man with a taste for American memorabilia. He collected the bloodstained chair in which President Lincoln was shot and George Washington’s camp bed from his days commanding the Continental Army. In 1931, the industrialist bottled the dying last breath of inventor Thomas Edison. Ford’s idiosyncratic devotion to the marvels of engineering permeates the collection, which includes a precise replica of the Wright Brothers’ 1903 flyer.
