World-Class Kitchens

See how the art of cooking has changed

A hallway at our 2014 Restaurant of the Year (page 66) has a large plate-glass window to offer a peek into the inner workings of a modern, world-class kitchen. At The Henry Ford, you can take an even closer look at home innovations that have changed our daily lives.

Four kitchens from different eras — including the 1930s kitchen shown above — are part of a “Historic Kitchens” display. There’s also an incredibly diverse collection of modern conveniences, including running water, electricity, bathtubs, and dishwashers. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head over to the Museum Café next to the iconic 1952 Wienermobile or pull up a stool at Lamy’s Diner. You may not get “Restaurant of the Year” type fare, but then again, sometimes all you need is a really good hot dog.
