The Henry Foird Museum is also attached to an IMAX cinema and a historical Village. As you can see from the pictures above this isn't just a car museum, in fact the car side of it is less than a quarter. There are loads of old household objects including radios, TV's even furniture, from the beginning of the USA to the recent past. This is a very interesting museum for looking at the history of America since the Mayflower. The items are basically those collected by Henry Ford throughout his lifetime.

 

The Henry Ford Museum is situated in Dearborn, Detroit, Michigan.
