DEARBORN, MICH.- Auto enthusiasts have the unusual opportunity to look under the hoods of some of the most iconic vehicles ever made during Engines Exposed at Henry Ford Museum. For the first time in five years, more than 40 vehicles inside the Driving America exhibit have their hoods popped, including a first-time look at the 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air, 1948 Tucker 48 Sedan, the 1936 Lincoln Zephyr and the 1916 Woods Dual Hybrid Coupe, a car that was 80 years ahead of its time.

During this nine-week limited engagement, guests can get behind-the-scenes details during a daily presentation in the Douglas Drive-in Theater on some of the most unique and significant automobiles in The Henry Ford’s collection, and learn about the key innovations in the history of these engines. Auto fans also have the rare opportunity to gain expert insight from Matt Anderson, their curator of transportation, and get a deeper look into their engines through the help of their digitized collection inside the Douglas Drive-in Theater on Saturday January 17 and March 14 at 1 p.m. Along with special presentations, guests can get an up-close look at Henry Ford’s kitchen sink engine in the Museum Plaza and explore the engine collection on their own on one of the 18 digital kiosks throughout Driving America.

For the young auto enthusiast there are plenty of opportunities to get hands-on during Tinker.Hack.Invent Saturdays throughout the run of Engines Exposed. In January explore the positives and negatives of fuel options through cool power demonstrations, hands-on exploration and the chance to assemble an electric car. In February, families can explore the inner workings of engines, help create working models of pistons, cams and valves, and discover how they make us move.

The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Michigan is an internationally-recognized cultural destination that brings the past forward by immersing visitors in the stories of ingenuity, resourcefulness and innovation that helped shape America. A national historic landmark with an unparalleled collection of artifacts from 300 years of American history, The Henry Ford is a force for sparking curiosity and inspiring tomorrow’s innovators. More than 1.6 million visitors annually experience its five attractions: Henry Ford Museum, Greenfield Village, The Ford Rouge Factory Tour, The Benson Ford Research Center and The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre.
