I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the Henry Ford for a half day on the way home from a business trip. I was very impressed! I can’t wait to return and see the entire thing!

+1 on the Indianapolis Speedway museum.
The other three are on my bucket list.
Another Washington DC museum worth visiting is the International Spy Museum.

Another place that nobody knows about and is really worth a visit is the Nethercutt Collection in Los Angeles. It is a privately owned museum however it is open to the public.
Look here: www.nethercuttcollection.org

There was a gentleman named Huell Howser (now deceased) that made a series of local TV shows here in California for the local PBS station KCET. He comes across in the videos as as a Tennessee farm boy that turned tour director but he was very very sharp and loved his job...
He did a wonderful series called "Visiting...With Huell Howser" and one of the shows was on the Nethercutt.
If you are into old stuff then it's very much worth watching...
Look here: www.kcet.org/shows/huell-howser/the-nethercutt-collection

I saw the Henry Ford in july 1973 i'm sure it hasn't changed much.. I would love to go back there and see more of the Smithsonian we saw a bunch about 5 yrs ago or so.I like the old Air, Car, etc.
