4. Monkeys Gone Wild
The single-story, nine-acre museum in Dearborn, Michigan, known as The Henry Ford displays everything from bicycles, buses, cars, airplanes and locomotives to unusual artifacts such as a test tube sealed and taken from the bedroom where Thomas Edison took his last breath. As big as it is, the museum still has treasures tucked away. One example: this diorama made around 1914 of 70 monkeys gambling, drinking and working in a saloon – all activities that the diorama maker, an inmate in a Massachusetts prison, believed led otherwise upstanding people astray.
