Default Pics: Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, Michigan

I visited Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn suburban Detroit Michigan early this week. The tour also included the Ford Rouge Factory tour where the F150 truck is manufactured.

Every 54 seconds 1 F150 truck is rolled out from the assembly plant!

F150

The Rouge Factory has a living roof which helps to regulate the temperature inside the Factory.

As a matter of privacy taking photos inside the Factory is prohibited. They show 2 movies at the beginning one is about Henry Ford and the other is about how they manufacture the F150!

As I visited the next day of Easter Sunday the Factory was not yet re opened for production after the Easter and Good Friday weekend. Hence I missed out on seeing the production of the F 150 in 54 seconds.

The Museum is just amazing with historical cars trains planes cycles and even telephones!

I will upload the pictures below of the Henry Ford Museum.

Must have been an awesome experience sameer.

Really enjoyed the pictures and especially loved the Desoto with those beautiful fins at the back.

And the Goldenrod was cool too. In fact it had 4 Hemi motors placed together unlike the land speed record cars of today that use Jet engines.

Awesome mate!!!!!!

Cheers!!!!!

I visited the Greenfield village next to the museum. There is a steam engine train which takes one around the village. Its a 30 min ride with 2 stops in between where one can hop on hop off to see the various sights.

The birthplace homes of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison are located here.

The village is a nice outdoor place for families to hang out and get a feel of the country side in the heart of a busy industrial township.

For tickets and other useful information about the Henry Ford Museum Ford Rouge Factory and the Greenfield Village www.thehenryford.org

I bought the combo tickets which costs $40 for the museum + factory tour. If you add the Greenfield village it's $58.
