Have you been to the Henry Ford Museum lately?

We went yesterday.  Jeff, Colton and I. 

They have made it much more kid friendly than I remember. 

P1000080

They have a LEGO exhibit going on right now.  Scale models of famous architecture.  The building above is probably 13 feet tall, and is a model of the tallest building in the world.  Behind it, to the right is a model of the Empire State Building (I THINK?) 

Here are some of the guys favorite things:

LEGO stations to build your own creation:

P1000085

Participate in a music video:

P1000092

A place to build your own paper airplane and then test fly it:

P1000100

Of course, many things to drive:

P1000087

P1000105

Huge and detailed model train tracks to watch:

P1000104

Wrenching on a pretend car:

P1000118

But one thing hasn’t changed since our kids were small….this is still the favorite vehicle:

P1000120

Of course, there were many other things….but its impossible to see it all in one day, especially with a curious 4 year old.  He loved spending time at all the activities, and it really was nice not to rush through.

  1. We took our girls to Legoland in Denmark ( the original) when they were young. It was the most amazing place ever.

  2. What fun. I’ll have to take my grandchildren next time they visit. We do usually go to the Hands on Museum in Ann Arbor. There’s lots to see there as well. Thanks for sharing your visit.
