In previous reviews I've extolled how great this place is, and I can't say much more about it. The buildings, stories of the staff, and old time baseball are reasons enough to visit. Here's the kicker - it's gotten even better since I visited last a year ago. More buildings have been renovated, there are more food options, and more... More

You need a whole day to see it all. We had thought we could do it in 3 hours, we were not even half way done at that point. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes because there is a lot of walking involved. The staff are incredible, they are more than actors, they actually live out the parts they play.... More

Map is wonderful, well laid out to plan your day/walk. Lots of walking, but also lots of places to stop and rest with snack/water/restrooms very accessible and plentiful. Well marked buildings with history on each of the placards at entrance. Beautifully kept grounds.

Words aren't sufficient to describe this area and the numerous things to see. It's like a tour back into time to see the various buildings and items that Henry Ford accumulated in his life and then wanted to share with the public.

My wife and I spent a full day at Greenfield Village with my lifelong buddy and his wife. We purchased the museum/village pass for only $33.00 per person. Being from Tampa this is an excellent bargain compared to the attractions near my home. We spent about 3 hours in the village and only saw about 10% of what is there.... More

A few thoughts here: -I did not find the price too high when I compared this excursion with the cost of going to see a movie. -The narrators were excellent. They were ALL very passionate about the location they were promoting. When asked I found out that many were retired teachers, or in one case a student going to school... More

We really enjoyed our visit even though it did seem a bit expensive. The people standing in the ticket line advised us to pay the extra fee for the all day transportation package.. We were very glad we did! At their suggestion we rode on the train first. It is a 30 minute ride with a total of 3 stops... More

An amazing collection of historical homes including Edison's lab and the Wright brothers bicycle shop. The buildings were collected from around the country and moved brick by brick to one large village. The shop prices are a little too high but the demonstrations of glass blowing, tin making, etc. are great! Opt for the ticket that lets you ride the... More

This place is incredible. Henry Ford was a forword thinker and adding many signicant historical events and places into one site. Wright Brothers, Thomas Edison's Menlo Park laboratory just to name a few, I wish I had this venue close to the school at which I taught. It would be an outstanding field trip venue.

Greenfield village is one of my favorite places, and what an honor it is to have it so close to home. I have grown up visiting the village, and every time I go, it's like seeing it all over again for the first time. Walk through those gates, and you are taken back into history. There is so much to...
