The Henry Ford Museum in Michigan Voted Number One in the List of the Top 10 Coolest Museums in the World



Michigan's Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation has been voted one of the coolest museums in the world for families by the New York Times. Ranked number one in the list of worldwide museums, it was recognised for being "chock-full of inventions, machines and pieces of Americana to explore, including a  1952 Wienermobile ."


The museum was also highlighted for some of its other attractions including the driving exhibit with 130 cars and 20 interactive exhibits and a section on freedom and justice that covers everything from revolution to suffrage to civil rights.


Some of the other most popular artefacts, exhibits and experiences include t he Rosa Parks Bus
Inside this  bus  on December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks, a soft-spoken African-American seamstress, refused to give up her seat to a white man, breaking existing segregation laws. Today you can step inside the bus yourself and take a seat as you immerse yourself in the courage of Rosa Parks.


Driving America  is an opportunity to look at America's favourite mode of transportation in a different way.  Stand back in awe and explore some of the earliest automobiles to take to America's roads, and then immerse yourself in the interactive exhibits to dive deep into the digital collections.

Note to Editors:                   


The State of Michigan is a state blessed with the riches of unspoiled nature: the longest freshwater coastline in the United States, lakes that feel like oceans, shimmering beaches, miles and miles of cherry orchards, glorious sunrises and sunsets, daytime skies of the deepest blue, nighttime skies scattered with stars.


 


Home to more than 100 public beaches, some of the highest freshwater sand dunes in the world, stunning multi-colored sandstone cliffs, two National Lakeshores and the only national marine sanctuary in the Great Lakes, the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary in Lake Huron. More than 129 lighthouses, numerous maritime museums, ten shipwreck-diving preserves and historic military fortifications rim Michigan's Great Lakes shoreline.


 


Lakes, campgrounds, wildlife refuges and 103 Michigan state parks and recreation areas create a wide variety of recreational pursuits. Rivers for water sports, and thousands of miles of hiking, biking, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling trails thread their way among some 100 species of trees.


Long days, relaxing weather and more than 650 pristine Michigan courses make for the perfect tee time. Because being able to play all day is Pure Michigan.
