Description from Wikipedia and Museum's sites:

Henry Ford Museum

Henry Ford Museum began as Henry Ford's personal collection of historic objects, which he began collecting as far back as 1906. Today, the 12 acre (49,000 m²) site is primarily a collection of antique machinery, pop culture items, automobiles, locomotives, aircraft, and other items:

The museum features an IMAX Theater, which shows scientific, natural, or historical documentaries; as well as major feature films

Gothic Steam Engine Despite the care lavished on its appearance, this massive and flamboyant engine was originally installed out of sight inside a lead processing factory in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is one of the finest examples of ornamented nineteenth century industrial machinery to have survived.

Highland Park Engine This electrical generator – originally built for Henry Ford’s Highland Park factory – is driven by a direct connected hybrid internal combustion / steam engine. By 1919 it took nine of these units to accommodate the power demands of Model T production.

McCoy Lubricator Elijah McCoy He used the skills he learned as an engineer and locomotive fireman to invent this device that automatically oiled moving parts on steam engines. His demand for such good quality workmanship led to the phrase "the real McCoy."

Allegheny Locomotive built in 1941 and weighing in at 600 tons, this was one of the largest steam-powered locomotives ever built. Designed for pulling huge coal trains over the Allegheny mountains of West Virginia, this locomotive could reach speeds of up to 60 miles per hour. This powerful behemoth is the centerpiece of our trains collection and a visitor landmark in Henry Ford Museum. The cab of the Allegheny locomotive is now open for public viewing.

Concord Stagecoach is one of the most significant horse-drawn vehicles developed in America is the famous Concord coach, first built in the late 1820s in Concord, New Hampshire

The Research Center also contains the Ford Motor Archives.
