This past Thursday I went to The Henry Ford Museum to see Julia Child's traveling exhibit, and it didn't disappoint. My Senior ticket was $31.50 plus $9 for parking. I didn't remember them charging for parking before, but it's been awhile since I've been there.
I've done three Julia Child presentations, have four of her books [non-cookbooks], some DVD's, and in 2012 I was lucky enough to find her cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume 1 at an Ohio flea market very reasonably priced [and have used it several times]. I saw her childhood Pasadena home during a 2019 visit to California, and during a 2016 visit to Washington D.C., I went to the Food Exhibition at the Smithsonian that featured her Cambridge, MA kitchen which she donated to the museum. So this exhibit so close to home was a must.
I took 199 photos, so that gives you an idea how detailed the exhibit was. It began with her childhood and young adult years and contained many photos. As long as a flash wasn't used, photography was permitted. If you're local and plan to go to the exhibit before it closes on September 10th, allow at least two hours to see and read everything.
