Been talking for years about returning to visit The Henry Ford Museum, after hubby and I were there many years ago (BC--before children). Now that our kids are teens, we decided to take the trip during Spring Break this year. Not sure if the kids really realized all of the cool stuff in there at first. After all the hype... More

Where to start? The Henry Ford was very easy to find, was only about 10 minute drive away from I-94. Easy to find parking as well. There is plenty of signage to show you where to go for what attraction you are there for. We took our kids to the museum part of The Henry Ford. Kids 4 and under... More

Everyone should experience The Henry Ford. We spent three days exploring the museum, the Village, and Rouge factory. The IMAX movie, D-Day was incredible. The vision Henry Ford had for preserving Americana as well as his ingenuity to invent and improve lives, just blows my mind. All the displays were motivating and empowering. I suggest everyone who visits also donate... More

While our children were growing up we had a yearly family membership. Every weekend was spent in visiting it. We considered it a great educational experience

We planned on going on the factory tour and figured why there we may as well do the museum as well considering the village was not open for the season yet. Boy am I glad we spent the time here. There is so much to see I could have spent another day here. It was beyond interesting seeing the presidential... More

Growing up in Dearborn I have been visiting Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village my whole life. My husband and I have maintained a family membership for about 30 years. It is the best place to take your kids to learn about history while having fun. Our kids feel like it is a second home to them. They grew up... More

Wonderful experience, someplace you can visit over and over and learn something new each time. You can easily spend a whole day if you like to stop and read at each exhibit.

The Henry Ford is a magical place that will entertain young and old equally. There are two main parts- the museum and the village. We have two grandsons and take every opportunity to spend time there. The boys Love the trains, cars airplanes and engines. The village hosts the annual Thomas the train event, and there is a small train... More
