“birth place of a revolution”

Birthplace of the   R E V O L U T I O N It might look old-fashioned now, but in 1908 the Model T was revolutionary. Inexpensive, light weight, durable, and easy to drive and repair, it was a great value for ordinary families. It quickly became the most popular car on the planet. The Model T changed not only what we drove then, but how we live today.  And it was conceived, developed, and built right here.   Undergoing   E V O L U T I O N Today, you can visit the birthplace of the Model T. The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant is again open and evolving into a symbol of Detroit’s ability to invent, innovate, and rebound. Walk the plank floors worn smooth by hundreds of workers and thousands of cars. See Henry Ford’s competition, his early successes and false starts. Learn how volunteers saved one of the world’s most significant industrial buildings. And support our ongoing restoration and education projects here in the mechanical heart of Detroit.  Join the revolution.

What an experience, loved our time here. The tour guides are so knowledgable and make your time here a great learning experience. Extremely helpful and accomodating staff from first greeting to goodbye. We had just missed the start of a tour but they let us tack on to it and then when we finished joined the start of the next group so we didnt have to wait around. Not that it would have been problem as so much to see and learn. Special thanks to tour guides Gerry and Tom who were brilliant. Also offered us a drink of Detroit's very own Ginger Beer which was a nice touch. Don't let the surrounding suburb and streets put you off, a little derelict, A MUST TO SEE WHEN VISITING DETROIT.

This is a wonderful homespun museum. The guides are great storytellers. This is absolutely worth the time.
