The Henry Ford Museum thoroughly enjoyable. The museum covers everthing from the turn of the 20th century eg. agricultural equipment, furniture, telephones, steam to electric engines, trains, and even cars! They have a collection of ex-Presidents' limos. Next door is a historical village (pay extra to see but worth it) which has people making arts and crafts from the early... More

We only got to go to the indoor portion of the museum, the village wasn't open. That being said, it was an awesome facility. There was so much more than just cars on display. They have old steam generators, assembly lines, chairs, even doll houses. There is something for everyone here. It was well worth the price of admission and... More

Clean, well lighted, lots of items, plenty of room to get between things, cars, trains, machinery, tractors, a car assembly line, and a zillion other things.

Miles and miles of walking both in the museum and in Greenfield Village and worth every minute spent doing so. The history is incredible, the museum is immaculately clean, the staff in both places outstandingly pleasant and helpful. Great adventure and would recommend a visit here to any and every one.

We went to The Henry Ford because some friends of ours who we travel with often wanted to go there. My expectations were low but I was astonished at the variety of the displays and the knowledge of the staff.

This is a place that everyone will find SOMETHING that interest them. There are cars, trains, furniture, and the factory tour is really cool. Very reasonable cost and family friendly. We did the buy one attraction and get the second half off. We stayed at the Best Western Greenfield Inn in Allen Park but it is only a few miles... More

It offers so much that a person could spend the whole day walking through the museum. It has food on both ends with bathrooms easily accessable for handicapers. A great place to spend the day with family and friends. Great popcorn at the IMAX that you can eat while casually walking through the museum.

It was a great experience visiting the HF museum. What a great collection of innovatives. Not only the history of the car but much more about American history, trains, aircrafts etc. exhibited in an inspiring way. A must see when you are in the area.

The Henry Ford is an excellent adventure of Ford automotive history. The plant tour, where they make F150 pickup trucks, is very interesting. As well as the videos of the Rouge Complex. The history of the 'modern' assembly line is fascinating.

Between the Museum and Village there is so much to see you will either need multiple days or multiple trips. I recommend letting kids help build the Model T car in the Museum and ride the carousel in the Village. The American history portion of the museum is great for older kids and parents.
