History Lesson At The Henry Ford

A field trip to a museum brings a history lesson to life for children of all ages. Inside of the Henry Ford you’ll find the largest steam engine ever built.

Although it rests silently on real railroad tracks inside the museum, press the exhibit button for the whistle and suddenly you can imagine how it powered its way through the Alleghany Mountains.

For a study on the automobile, there’s no other place to learn about its beginnings and evolution than at The Henry Ford. The museum specializes in telling the stories about America, its inventors and historical figures.

You’ll see the chair that President Abraham Lincoln sat in on the night in 1865 when he was assassinated and the bus that Rosa Parks boarded in Montgomery, Alabama to spark the Civil Rights Movement.

Plan a visit for a fresh lesson about our country’s past.
