This is an amazing place and what a tribute they had today. A special event commemorating the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's assassination. The centerpiece of which was the actual rocker he sat in at the Ford Theater when the event occurred. We should be thankful that Henry Ford had the hindsight to purchase this piece of history in 1929,... More

I have been to both, the Villiage & the Museum many, many times over the years. One of my favorite places to visit when in Detroit area. packed with history; beautiful, relaxing villiage. Museum usually has something for everyone. Worth a couple days and the price of admission is nominal. Friendly staff etc.

Definitely worth a visit so much to see anyone in the Detroit area should go and have a look. This is not just cars it is American history, farming,aircraft, trains and technology with the centre pieces the Lincoln chair and George Washington's bed from the war.

We especially went to see the historic cars but were impressed with the variety of exhibits. I noticed all ages of children enjoying the interactive displays and activities the museum offers. We also noted the wide open walkways and areas - you didn't feel at all claustrophobic. We spent 3 hours at the museum but one could easily spend the... More

They took to all types and kinds of exhibits at the museum . We got there at 11 and left near closing. We were worn out they were ready to keep going. A surprising number of hands on activities for children spread around the museum. If you are a car or train buff this is heaven. My grand daughters favorite... More

I spent four hours walking through the museum and wished I had more time. I was not expecting to find such impressive artifacts from early and modern American history. The highlights are the chair Abraham Lincoln sat in when he was assassinated, George Washington's Camp bed, and the bus Rosa Parks sat in when she was forcibly removed. I was... More

The history and cars of this beautiful campus were far more than we expected. The museum itself was outstanding with far more than just classic cars but buses, trains, and 'road culture' along with period displays to match the era. Greenfield village was a real treat for me. I enjoyed the history of Edison and Tesla as much as the... More

Excellent, well kept up facility with a lot of different areas to explore. Wish there was a little more hands on to experience, though. Kids got a bit tired of display after display. Highlights were the Rosa Parks bus, talking about how the assembly line and HF philosophy changed the world, and the trains. I really liked the circular home.... More

Museum, Greenfield Village, and Factory tour among the best attractions in the museum genre. The museum is more than the story of Ford, it brings the timeline of the 20th century into living still-life realism. Many aspects of modern transportation is covered, from walking, covered wagons, to the advent of the automobile. Topics include Henry Ford (and Detroits) becoming the... More

Well, I'm not really a museum type of person, however my hubby wanted to visit the museum for the cars. However, there is something for everyone. Old cars, including old presidential limos, furniture, black history, farming tools, foodies, etc. I would have liked to do the village tour, but it wasn't open for the season when we were there, but...
