A World of Discovery: Detroit's Greenfield Village

Part of the Henry Ford Museum, Detroit's Greenfield Village is more than just a place where you can rub shoulders with the past: You'll see reproductions, and a bit of the real thing, too. The Wright Brothers' store from Dayton, Ohio is real, for example, and painstakingly and lovingly reassembled. The lab of tinkerer Thomas Edison is simulated, however, but visitors can still see the Wizard of Menlo Park's key inventions, including the light bulb.

Every part of Greenfield Village takes you back in time, from the Model T's, to the steam engine which you can ride around to get a bird's eye view of Ford's immense and insatiable collection.
