I travel to Michigan on vacation and made our plans around visiting the Ford museum. I checked the website to ensure that the factory tour was open and booked our tickets. When I arrived to exchange the vouchers (mind you I was there 5 minutes before it opened) I was told that the factory tour was closed that day. I... More

Loved hearing about the history of the automotive industry in Detroit. Really cool information about Henry Ford and the assembly line.

Great place to take the family. This is for anybody over the age of 12 to understand what life was like decades ago. There is a fair bit of walking, but there are places to rest. There's a couple of places to get food that is reasonably priced. Not only is there a great car collection, but all modes of... More

What a great opportunity to see historical events! Its not just automotive but many other things too, not the least of which is the original Oscar Meyer Weinie mobile and the first off the line Mustang convertible. Look at furniture, incredible doll houses, steam engines, old TV shows, lights and even airplanes. Enjoy walks down memory lane but wear comfortable... More

So clean and well kept, interesting displays. Large open concept made it easy to see everything without line ups of people getting in your way.

Great place to relive history. Wear comfortable clothes, especially shoes as there is a lot of walking. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. To see most everything would probably take two days as they open at 9:30 and close at 5. Worth the trip. We are looking forward to coming again.

Our teens are sometimes hard to please but they loved The Henry Ford. Highlights included the car that Kennedy was assassinated in, the Rosa Park's bus, the chair Lincoln was sitting in when he was shot....You get the point. There were a lot of things that really impressed. The Greenfield Village was also great. Highly recommend!

This museum has a little bit of everything. The highlights for us would include: George Washington's camp bed, the chair that Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in, the limo that JFK was riding in when he was shot, the Rosa Parks bus, and the Dymaxion house to name a few. It seems like we see something new every time we visit.... More

My husband and I visited The Henry Ford the end of May. I had read reviews and expected it to be interesting. We were surprised at just how many exhibits and displays showing the history of our American way of life there are. It is very organized, much more than anticipated and displays keep your interest. You could certainly spend... More
