About Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation
Perhaps nobody in history did more to advance American innovation than Henry Ford. As such, his namesake museum is dedicated to the idea that ordinary people are capable of changing the world with simple innovations. Throughout Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, exhibits document the unparalleled genius of the American people in all its forms, including the bravery of Rosa Parks, the vision of Buckminster Fuller, and the legacy of Abraham Lincoln. Here's a little of what you can expect inside:
- Size: This nine-acre museum is filled with American ideas and innovations, where you'll be inspired by the stories of game changers and risk-takers through artifacts like the bus in which Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, the chair in which Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, and a replica of the plane in which the Wright brothers first took flight.
- Eye Catcher: When Buckminster Fuller re-imagined the established structure of the American house, he did more than create an architecturally efficient, circular home. He inspired an entire generation of innovators to think outside of the box. His Dymaxion House, inspired by particular methods advocated in the automobile industry by Henry Ford, was a stunning accomplishment in engineering proficiency. Today it serves as a nesting place for your next big idea.
- Permanent Mainstay: With an unparalleled collection of vehicles, guests explore how much of our culture has been influenced by the automobile in the past 100 years. From the 1865 Roper, the oldest surviving American car, and Henry Ford’s first gas-powered vehicle to the hybrid 2002 Prius, the Driving America exhibit helps to tell the story of how automotive innovations have changed our lives.
- Don't Miss: The chance to climb aboard the massive 600-ton Allegheny locomotive, introduced in 1941, it's one of the largest and most powerful steam locomotives ever built.
