Saying that The Henry Ford is a museum is like calling Disneyland an amusement park. Technically, you’re correct, but you’re still completely wrong. The pretty campus in suburban Dearborn, just minutes from Ford Motor Company headquarters, offers a complete immersion in American history and folklore. We recommend you spend a long, leisurely day here, but if you really want to take advantage of all the complex has to offer (and have a burning interest in cars), you’re looking at a minimum of two. There's the museum, which features the Rosa Parks bus and the Kennedy presidential limousine (the one from that fateful day in Dallas), and then there’s the 90-acre Greenfield Village, a collection of important buildings from across the country. One of our favorite things here is the River Rouge factory tour—it’s a chance to see inside an actual Ford production facility just down the street. Come back for a movie at the IMAX theater, which shows everything from educational 3D films to popular releases.
