I visited this museum on 10/19/2014. I visited this museum with my family and kids. This museum is pretty big as there are different venues to visit. I mainly checked out the museum and saw lots of cars, tractors and aircrafts. They did a good job of displaying all the cars from early 1900s till now. I would suggest taking... More

What a wonderful, fact filled, fun yet interesting place. Huge and something for everyone. Yes, it's expensive but worth it! I think you need 2 days to see the huge museum and Greenfield village. So much history here. George Washington's bed, the chair Lincoln was shot in and still blood stained. The bus and seat rosa Park sat in. Presidential... More

We took our kids to the Henry Ford Museum, as they love trains, and we knew there were some there. We found that there was so many more wonderful things. As you enter the building, it seems very elegant - beautiful chandeliers, old doorways. I asked the original purpose of the building, and was told it was always intended to... More

The content of the museum is interesting, however, there is a mandatory $5 hidden parking charge when you buy your tickets. Also, the museum tickets are $18 and the Village is $24 per person. On top of that if you want to see the factory it's another $15. So a trip to the Ford Landmark may cost you $62 per... More

The Henry Ford consists of two main parts: The Henry Ford Museum and The Greenfield Village. The Henry Ford Museum has a lot of wonderful exhibits on display. From Airplanes to cars to full size locomotives, there's something for everyone. Their Presidential Limo display has the original Reagan Limo and the original Kennedy Limo. One of their newest displays is... More

We were not sure as to what to expect, especially with a teenager. But we all loved it - planes, trains and automobiles.

The place is huge, and all of the displays are well done. Unique things like a big collection of stationary steam engines, the motel rooms, the Dymaxion House, and the "Liberty and Justice for All" exhibit. A great full day of activity. And the food is pretty good at the Michigan Cafe.

To begin, you should note that although this is "The Henry Ford" (otherwise known as "The Henry Ford Museum") it isn't all about the man or his family. In fact, the museum barely touches on the history of Ford and his cars. The bulk of the museum is about the history of travel- showcasing cars from their earliest stages up... More
