DEARBORN, Mich. (WXYZ) - The Henry Ford is preparing to unveil Driving America, a new automotive exhibition that will replace the former exhibit The Automobile in American Life in Henry Ford Museum.
Driving America will open to the public January 29. A special preview celebration is scheduled for the day before the official opening .
Driving America will feature more than 130 vehicles and 60 cases of artifacts. Touchscreens will also be included to give viewers greater access to the museum's collection.
“Driving America is more than an exhibition with cars on display,” said Patricia Mooradian, president of The Henry Ford. “It is really an interactive, state-of-the-art story of us—us as drivers, consumers and enthusiasts. It examines the car as an innovation and explores how it has changed almost every aspect of our lives and heavily influenced the decisions we make. It is an exhibition that resonates with us all and it will challenge us to think differently about what we drive.”
