I had a chance to go through the amazing Henry Ford Museum during Maker Faire Detroit (which was held in the Museum and in the parking lot there). I was expecting it to be mainly about Henry Ford and Ford cars, but it was so much more than that. It was much bigger than I imagined, and it contained exhibits about cultural and technological developments around the world, from the mid-19th century to the present day. I think it was one of the most interesting museums I've ever visited. I plan to write a few of posts about the museum. Here's my first.
I enjoyed this cool exhibit of a geodesic commune home, circa 1973. Bob Dylan music was playing and the bookshelves included High Priest, by Timothy Leary and The Naked Ape, by Desmond Morris. (I wish I could have taken clearer photos of the bookshelves.)
The place looked cozy. I was ready to move in.
More photos after the jump.
