Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Villiage in Michigan
I grew up in Michigan, and my favorite family-friendly attraction was always the Henry Ford museum and Greenfield Village, which is right next to it. Both locations are very educational and fun for kids.
The museum is a great place to visit in the winter when the weather is cold, and the village is great for the summertime.
The Henry Ford museum has many cars, airplanes, and other attractions to look at. My favorites were the Oscar-Mayer Wienermobile, the Rosa Parks bus, and the car that JFK was shot in. They also have the chair that Abraham Lincoln was shot it!
Another thing I remember as a kid was a hands-on machine that you could crank to make light bulbs light up. There is also great food, a great gift shop, and a machine where you can make your own wax mold as a souvenir. These things delighted me as a kid.
The village also has a lot of history, and teaches kids what it was like to live long ago with no electronics or texting! It’s a lovely place to walk around when the weather is nice. There are ponds with geese and ducks that you can feed, and other animals like sheep. The village also has its own train to get around in if you don’t feel like walking.
