The Village has so much to see. We took 2 days could have used more time. Most buildings have live historians who explain what time period and significance to our country. They make it interesting and open to any questions. The village is well set up. We enjoyed one day with unlimited Model T cars, train, carousel, bus, and horse... More

When we entered, we took a train ride, nothing much, so we thought, half a day would do for this place.. once we went in to houses, we continue in and out almost all houses. But we did not finish all, as they close at 5pm. We make a late start of the day. We enjoyed riding in carriage, T... More

We were surprised and delighted by how enjoyable, well maintained, friendly, and fun Greenfield Village turned out to be. We did not know much about it in advance and were blown away. Our young kids, ages six and three, had a fantastic day at Greenfield Village. There was plenty to do, the employees were very engaging, the facilities are immaculate,... More

This is probably the best pioneer/period village you'll ever visit. A few years ago we did the museum and the village, but it was so hot we didn't see all the village. So this time we skipped the museum and did a short IMAX film (3D Nascar which was very informative and fun) and the village. STILL didn't see the... More

That's a direct quote from my wife. She also said that if this were located on either coast, everybody would know about it. I agree whole heartedly. I had read the high TripAdvisor reviews for Greenfield Village, so my expectations were high from the start and the place exceeded them. I have an engineering degree and work in tech technology...

There are so many reviews, so I will just add some helpful hints...first, while you can spend a very enjoyable day here & see a lot, it is best to allow two days at least. We were there from shortly after opening through closing & only saw about half of what we wanted to! Second, know that the only ride... More

I came here several times as a child and brought my twin toddlers (almost 2 years old) with me on this trip. This place is as fun (maybe more fun) as I remember it! Strolling through history, meeting staff in character, riding the train, and eating in the tavern were highlights. My kids were in a stroller but there were... More

Haven't been here in over 25 years. What a mistake. It is a beautiful place to visit. So many interesting original houses of famous people. Loved the Tea Cottage! My children dipped their own candles. We watched an old time baseball game where an old time band played between innings. Loved all of the different forms of transportation that were... More

Great place to take the kids. Beautiful grounds and kids were able to get a feel for the history of Henry Ford's works. There are so many things here to keep their attention. We visited this AFTER the Factory Tour.
