Experience America this summer with Andrew Burmon

Inside Dearborn's Henry Ford Museum

Outside downtown Detroit, in Dearborn, there's a museum filled with airplanes and cars and farm implements and the most outlandish house ever conceived. Somehow, the bric a brac works, brought together as The Henry Ford Museum, an institution less focused on a particular moment or a particular discipline that the very idea of American innovation, financed by the inventor's healthy curiosity-and bankroll.

Also here is an artificial town, Greenfield Village, a collection of notable buildings brought to Dearborn from across the country. One particularly telling structures is the Wright Brothers' Cycle Shop, relocated from Dayton, Ohio, Ford's nod to tinkerers who changed the course of history, experimenting with something completely new in a garage, just like he did with his Quadricycle, the world's first car. (The museum has that too.)
