A World of Discovery: Detroit's Greenfield Village
Part of The Henry Ford Museum, Greenfield Village in Detroit is more than a place where you can rub shoulders with the past: you'll see reproductions, and a bit of the real thing. The Wright Brothers' store from Dayton, Ohio is real, and reassembled painstakingly and lovingly in Detroit. The lab of tinkerer Thomas Edison is simulated, however, but visitors can still see the Wizard of Menlo Park's key inventions in the Village, including the light bulb. Every area of Greenfield Village takes you back in time, from the Model T's to the steam engine which you can ride around the Village to get a bird's eye view of the immense and insatiable collection of Ford. The Henry Ford and Greenfield Village is quite convincingly America's finest collection of historical innovations.
