If you didn’t get enough auto action at the North American International Auto Show, there’s more in store for you. The world’s premiere automotive exhibit, Driving America, has come to life at The Henry Ford.

This permanent exhibit, spanning 80,000 square feet, features 130 vehicles of various makes, models and shapes. Expect a dynamic infusion of technology into The Henry Ford’s take on automobiles through the ages.

Visitors can immerse themselves in the exhibition by using 18 interactive 42-inch touch screens offering a plethora of information about the cars on display. In addition, visitors will receive a smart card upon entering the exhibit to interface with the technology displays, customizing and commemorating their experience.

You won’t want to miss the oldest surviving American car in the world, the 1865 Roper, the theater where you can view a 10-minute film on how the automobile transformed the world, or lunch at the 1940s diner-style fare at Lamy’s Diner.

There’s something for all ages at this new exhibit, so grab the kids, buckle up and enjoy the ride at the Driving America exhibit at The Henry Ford.
