The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn Michigan, reminds me of the Smithsonian American History Museum in Washington D.C. It was much more than I expected. Not only all kinds of cars and trucks, but farming implements, trains, presidential limousine's and airplanes. Large areas devoted to early radio and television, including many antiques. A section on the life of President Lincoln... More

You will see a huge variety of things here!! I personally loved the pop culture time travel and all the things that were in "style" in those years, dont want to give too much away though. The cars are fascinating, from old to real old. There is something for everyone to see in this museum. The musuem cafeteria is also... More

Really went to visit the village, but fell in love with the museum. So much to see and do. The car Kennedy was shot in, the car Reagan was shot outside of, the bus Rosa Parks started the civil rights movement in. SO much to see and learn! Loved the wax machines to make miniature replicas.

If you have the opportunity to go to The Henry Ford Museum, just go!! It was incredible! It's a true testament to what a forward thinker Henry Ford was. My sister and I attended with 4 kids, 4-14 years old, and we all loved it. The exhibits are outstanding. Also, good to know is that there are plenty of restrooms... More

We had some time to kill before leaving for our trip home, so we spent 3 hours at the Ford. It was well worth it. We only got to see the this one part, but there is much more to see. The Ford had more than cars, that's for sure. The Presidential limos were interesting, the old time airplanes were... More

I was in town and decided to check out this gem. It was a find! Now I was expecting cars and a few other things, little realizing that it also included a collection of steam engines, and not just locomotives, antique household articles, a few airplanes, and some historical artifacts. Well worth a visit.

My husband wanted to visit. I thought it would be a bunch of cars. Yes, lots of cars. But, lots of interesting information. And it's not all about cars. There is a section of 'pop culture' spanning from early 1900's to present time. There is much information about the history of industrial machining. One thing we didn't get to do,... More

Between the Henry Ford and the Rouge Factory Tour we kept a 7 and 9 year old interested for almost 7 hours. A lot to see at a reasonable price.
