As a history buff this is the ultimate place to experience American history. To be able to stand right in front of the Kennedy Presidential Limosine and the Lincoln chair was a highlight. Every American should have the opportunity to visit this great place sometime in their lives.

This is really several attractions in one place. The museum has quite a few exhibits including some awesome old cars and planes. Also enjoyed the Imax theater. Good for kids above age 4

One of better museum I have been to. Very clean and well maintained... Very interesting history of train, auto, agricultural machinery, home lifestyles, and innovations from 1700's to present. Don't miss if you have some time in Detroit area!
