    Im not but I have been there before. I honestly thought it was going to be a museum that displays Henry Ford items and cars but man was I dead wrong. The displayed a bunch of historical things but not much having to do with Henry Ford himself.

      That's because it started as a collection of historic items Henry Ford owned. I for one love the museum, and I visit it many times a year. Mainly because I live so close to it.

        Where is the Henry Ford Museum?
        Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

          It's in Michigan.

          Ask mike isn't it in a place called Greenwich Village in Detroit or something? I forget the city name that it is in but My Uncle lives close to it.

          I remember when I visited there last I ate in like a retro style cafe.
          You know the type of style you would see in Happy Days.

                Oh man, I would KILL to go. The Henry Ford Museum is one of my all time favorite museums. Ford was kind of an excentric guy. He liked all sorts of Americana things, and he collected a LOT of whatever he liked. He didn't just have a couple historical lightbulbs. He had hundreds of lightbulbs of different shapes, sizes, and technologies. He didn't have a couple vacuums, he had every model he could get his hands on. Plus, he had some really quirky items. Along with the chair from the Ford Theater in which President Lincoln was shot, the museum has what's purported to be Lincoln's last breath, a corked test tube that Lincoln's son-in-law supposedly help up to Lincoln's nose or mouth as he died.

                It's a fascinating museuem and I'm sure they will do a wonderful job presenting the Disney story. I'm sad I'll be missing this.

                Oh yeah, Greenfield Village is a pretty good recreated historical village to boot.

                  I have to admit I found the museum a little boring because It was completely different than what I expected and I did not know why the things were on display and what they had to do with Ford until now. They had Lincolns assasination chair there? When did they get it and where is it located in the museum? Why didn't Fords theatre keep it?

                    Ford purchased the chair in 1929. It was there in 1989 when I visited. They restored it in 1999.

                    Oops, I must correct myself. Apparantly it's Edison's last breath on display, not Lincoln's. Oh well, one can't expect an 11 year old's memory to be perfect, right?

                        How interesting. Perhaps I was there when it was getting restored. Bummer .
