Don't get me wrong, this musueum is amazing.. so many things to see and do, Ford T's to motorhomes, Presidential cars to Lincoln's chair... The most moving part of the museum was, without a doubt, the Rosa Parks bus. However, I feel the pricing of this musueum is very very misleading and quite naughty - if you buy the museum... More

Again, I had not visited this museum for many years...it is not the same museum. Remember those aisles and aisles of items....gone. What items they have chosen to present are presented well. The Presidential Autos, the Ford Autos, the trains, Lincoln's Chair, the Rosa Parks Bus, the kitchens from past to present, the evolution of tourism lodging. There were a... More

This is an amazing museum packed full of cars, planes, trains and other exciting things! The kids really loved it - there are some real pieces of history including the JFK Limo and the Rosa Parks bus which you can sit in. You really need a full day but if your tight for time you can get the best bits... More

We just visited The Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village. There is so much to see, it would take multiple visits. It is so clean and well maintained. The staff is exceptional, well informed about the displays and eager to answer questions or take pictures. Not just about cars, there's trains, communication, housing, etc. It's a walk in the past.... More

I highly recommend visiting The Henry Ford, it has great history and displays. My visit was both Greenfield Village and this museum in one day, which is asking a bit too much. I recommend giving more than one day for both attractions so you can take your time and rest where necessary.

The Henry Ford is an unbelievable collection of every aspect of American life. From the world's largest steam engine, an historic street from the past to the BEST collection of classic cars. From Stutz Bearcat to a General's fine car of the Third Reich . The collections change from time to time. A collection of "Funeral Jewelry" was one collection... More
