The Henry Ford Museum

I spent the day with my mom and my nephews at The Henry Ford Museum. Since we only had time to do one thing there today, we let the boys choose which thing and decided they wanted to see the stuff inside the museum. After they chose, I told them that they had made a good choice since there are a couple of especially morbid exibits there that I always love to see. One is the actual chair that Abraham Lincon was shot and killed in and the other is the limo that JFK was riding in when he was shot in Dallas. The kids gave me a "who *is* this creepy women?" look when I told them that though ;)

We had a fun day even though I never did get to point out either the chair or the limo to the boys. Here are some photos:


I am a big train fan so I love the history of trains exhibit. I stopped the boys long enough to get them to pose in front of one of the trains for me.


Here I am sitting next to my new best friend. People kept calling her a dummy though but I thought she was a very good listener.


This is my mom in front of a vintage McDonalds sign. I love old neon signs so I enjoy that part of the museum.


They had a neat hands on exhibit that included this old car. The boys seemed to enjoy playing around in it.


This was from an exibit about Generation X. Anyone else remember playing with this toy?



They had a kind of neat activity where they encouraged kids to submit ideas for inventions for the future. Here are the ones the boys came up with. I liked both ideas but decided that if I could only choose one, it would be the android2000 since Emil assured me that it would both change the catbox and mow the lawn and that it would do it without complaining and well...toast is great and all but...well, I think everyone here knows my opinion of lawn mowing. Still the slicing toaster looked pretty cool and I kind of imagined it making a light saber sort of noise as it sliced and toasted. That would be sooooo COOL!

Oh man, I loved the museum, but dear God, that Gen X exhibit creeped me out...are we really so old that that stuff warrants its own historical type display???

Going to a museum like that is not something you can that much enjoy here. Due to the revolution 30 years ago, all history, good & bad, had been written all over agian. So you can see that the past 'memorials' should be just plain 'bad' to a visitor. I enjoyed my visits to those kind of museums though, I have a gift of wild imgination, recreating the whole view in mind eyes.

certainly like your web site but you have to test the spelling on quite a
few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very bothersome to tell
the reality on the other hand I'll surely come again again.

It's in fact very complex in this active life to listen news on TV, so I simply use the web for that purpose, and get the hottest news.
