Looking for a fun day trip?
Got a long overnight in Detroit?
Love cool museums, especially ones with a focus on aviation?
Then check out the Henry Ford Museum!
This museum is unique in that it is strongly associated with a brand, yet it doesn’t cling to it. Go to the Delta Flight Museum and you’ll hear all about Delta, but not much else. Same applies to just about every other branded museum. The Henry Ford instead focuses on Americana from all corners of the country, competing brands, and items from all different industries. Planes, trains, automobiles? Sure, but also exhibits on the civil rights era, agriculture, and even chairs.
The Airline Reporter just did a full report on the aviation aspect of the Henry Ford Museum.
