Contrary to what most would think…the Ford Museum is not only about cars! This museum takes you on a historical journey from agriculture to aircraft to railroads to American history. I would highly recommend this for anyone who has an interest in any of these areas. A must do attraction if you are visiting Detroit. Plan on at least 3... More

This review is specifically for The Henry Ford, the museum. It does not include Greenfield Village or the Rouge Factory tour as those require separate tickets at significant cost. The Henry Ford itself is interesting. It is not just a museum about automobiles. There are many different displays of interest to children and adults of all ages. I particularly enjoyed... More

Really cool experience! My wife and I loved walking around the HFM. The experience may be a bit different than during normal hours because we were there for a holiday company party. Would recommend this place for sure.

The is one of the most amazing museums that I have ever been in, it contains so much american history and automotive history. Spending 1 day there probably can't do it justice, you really won't be able to enjoy it all in one visit.

We visited on Saturday, surprised it wasn't very busy--perhaps the cold. There is such a variety of specimens and subjects that the whole family can find something of interest. We bought a membership, since we will come back in the spring to visit the Village. I'd like to do the River Rouge tour too.

The evening festivities at Greenfield Village are fun for the whole family with carolers, ice skating, glass blowing, model T rides, fireworks and many other musical performances and exhibits. The roasted chestnuts and hot chocolate make for a perfect holiday night.

It's a great place to visit with the family. It's not only dedicated to the evolution of the car industry, but the american society in all during the 20th century. You can see how it was to live in the 20s, 30s, 40s... all decades with its characteristics. The development of different energy sources such as mills or electricity, the... More

really great place to go to take the kids. Very interesting and a really nice atmosphere. Well worth the investment in the time to get there and I definitely recommend going to see this place were in town! Also really good idea to visit the River Rouge facility as well!
