Henry Ford Museum

IMG_5214Hi everyone! This post is a bit of a deviation from my normal Northeast Ohio focus. I often have a chance to travel and since introducing others to things that they may not know about is a passion of mine, I decided to highlight a really cool place outside of my typical area.

Monday, September 7th, I spent some time at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. When my family first introduced the idea, I thought that we were just going to be seeing the history of the cars that Ford made. I was pleasantly surprised that there was so much more.

The Henry Ford Museum is like a step back into the past. It’s a massive indoor and outdoor museum complex that highlights the Industrial Revolution in all of its glory.

Some of my favorite pieces were the car that Kennedy was assassinated in, the bus where Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, and the generators and steam machines that had some of the finest craftsmanship that I’ve ever seen. They blew my mind and left me contemplating my place in this world and the fragility of life.

IMG_5298I’ll spare you all my heavy rant about the appreciation of history and learning from one’s past to further the future. If you ever want to hear it, we can discuss it over coffee or something.

Check out a few of the photos I took below:

Thanks for reading,
