This museum a like a fantasy land. It is full of historical and scientific exhibitions and you don’t even know which one to go see.

My first trip was to Greenfield Village which takes you back in time and offers a great tour of America’s history including houses, factories where famous people (Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, The Wright Brothers, Daniel Webster, and Stephen Foster) worked and lived in. There were also real people going about their lives, cooking in old fashioned ways, driving old cars or bicycles; they represent citizens of historic America.

Another exhibit that is a must-see is the 1952 Wienermobile, designed by Oscar Mayer, which looks like a huge sausage on wheels.

The Aston Martin of James Bond, which Sean Connery drove in the movie Goldfinger is the best. It was really amazing to see the actual car of such a famous movie figure.Reply
