The Henry Ford Museum Opens Permanent Hallmark Ornament Display

The Henry Ford Museum recently opened up a permanent Hallmark ornament display. The collection originally belonged to The Party Shop in Warsaw, Indiana. After being acquired by the Henry Ford, the museum displayed 110 ornaments during the 2019 holidays which included the 1991 Enterprise. Today, you can see the entire collection of thousands of Hallmark ornaments on display in Dearborn, Michigan.

STAR TREK

“The science-fiction classic Star Trek started as a series that aired from 1966 to 1969. But it became such a cult classic that it spun off into several later movies and TV series. Beginning with the Starship Enterprise in 1991, Star Trek ornaments have always appealed to Trekkies who eagerly await the annual release of the new ornaments.”
