This museum will take over a day if you read everything. There is a good variety of things to see for the whole family. If you have a history buff, plan on them touring it alone or you'll get bored. If you're cold natured, bring or wear a jacket and long pants. We got cold in our shorts and short... More

We changed our vacation plans to center around the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. We were not disappointed. This is a fantastic museum. It is so much more than cars. The history just lives in the museum. What an outstanding campus and building. As you drive up to it you know you won't be at all disappointed. We went... More

I went expecting to see some really cool old cars, and I did, but I also saw much much more. This place is amazing so don't be in a hurry. It covers many more topics than the automobile, even more than trains and planes. It constantly changes so you don't know exactly what you will see but there are displays... More

This was our fourth visit from out of state. We love all the unusual displays that we don't see anywhere else. The largest locomotive ever build is amazing, and love that you can climb in the cab and sound the horn. Love eating in the 50s dinner. The display of presidential cars is so interesting, and that's just the tip... More

********++++++ 5 Star Rating isn't enough. This is a fantastic place. For the whole adventure, set aside two days while visiting. This will be our third visit here and we will come back again. The sights are breath taking and the staff is too of the charts. Well worth the money and time. You won't want to leave!!

This place is incredible. It's like taking a trip back in time. There is so much to see and do it takes at least four hours to tour the museum itself if not an entire day. Not to mention they have an IMAX theater and Greenfield Village which could easily take up a half a day by themselves. They also... More
