We only had a couple hours at the end of the day after being in the heat all day at Green Field Villiage. First advice, don't try to do both on the same day! There is way too much to see. What we saw of the museum was amazing and we only really saw one exhibit. It could easily be... More

You could literally spend all day here. I only had a few hours but I found the place to be fascinating. My highlights were seeing the Presidential cars and also being able to sit in the very bus seat that Rosa Parks refused to give up. Humbling stuff. Great value for money and a definite highlight of my US trip

This is a beautiful place to learn and explore the History of American inventions and creative thinkers. We were there only for half a day and wish we had more time. We'll def go back!

Went to the Henry Ford and once again was not disappointed. Not only does this museum cover the industrial age but various aspects of American History. I feel this museum does a great justice for the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement. I get goosebumps every time I get on the Rosa Parks bus. The great think is they paint... More

We took our grandson, who lives in SC, to this museum, and spent the whole day there, and could have spent another. We all enjoyed the exhibits. Our grandson especially loved the cars, as he really enjoys the older ones and drives a 1985 car his mother bought when she graduated college. I loved seen all the old farming equipment,... More

We went to the Henry Ford with our 8-year old twins after spending 6 hours at the adjacent Greenfield Village so only had about 2 hours. The museum is extremely well curated and displayed. I love cars, so seeing all shapes and sizes of collector cars was fun. The freedom exhibit was interesting and there were quirky things like a... More

The Henry Ford is one of my favorite places. It consists of the Henry Ford Museum (a large enclosed museum with American artifacts, with an emphasis of automotive history), Greenfield Village (a village consisting of relocated and reconstructed historic structures), and the Ford Rouge Assembly Plant tour (site of Ford F150 truck manufacture). The museum has rotating exhibits all year.... More

Went back to visit Henry Ford Museum last week after seeing it 49 years ago. At 71 years young I could not remember much except for the big locomotives and classic cars. It impressed me having 14 acres of historic cars, steam locomotives , machines, artifacts, and president , s limos. The place was spotless and exhibits were polished and... More

The Henry Ford Museum was very impressive. It was recommended by a friend - it should be more widely advertised. It is so impressive and versatile. We allowed 1 day - and came back again on our second day as we had not managed to see everything.
