Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan began with a vision that Mr. Henry Ford had of preserving many historic buildings, and the contents of them for future generations to explore and learn about. I spent a wonderful afternoon there recently on a beautiful spring May day. The village is very large. It's impossible to tour the whole thing in one day.... More

Just watched "Sunday Morning" that had a feature story on the Wright Brothers. Just days ago I walked through the Wright Brothers Bicycle Shop and their family home which were both reconstructed at the Village. We had a 10/10 day because the weather was perfect, not many visitors at the Village and the experience itself that Henry Ford created for... More

What a wonderful vision Henry Ford had to create a masterpiece of history. We gave ourselves the whole day and I just didn't get to see quite everything. The glass factory and the Wright Bros. house was a highlight. Words really cannot do justice for this wonderful family place.

From a ride in a Model T, on a steam engine train, to a horse and buggy! Makes one appreciate what Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, the Wright Brothers, and Noah Webster accomplished for our great nation!

Watching the way the world worked a hundred and thirty years ago is interesting. It helps keep perspective on what we have, and where we came from.

The village and all the activities provided throughout the summer months is a wonderful way to create family memories and learn about the history of this time period. Authentic antique buildings, automobiles, trains and so much more. The 4th of July festivities with the Detroit Symphony playing along to the fireworks is especially impressive!

Step back in time. Board the Steam engine for a trip around the village. Visit Thomas Edison's laboratory. See the Train Roundhouse. Visit the Ford Motor Company and the Henry Ford Theater. There are seven distinct districts. Spend the day, meet the people, taste the food, visit the historic landmarks, have fun!

My wife and I are annual members and try to visit as frequently as possible. This visit we went first into the Museum for lunch at Lamys Diner, a restored 1946 diner, which was immense fun as the last time we were in the Museum it did not offer food. After lunch we went out into the Village where the... More

This place is incredible. The attention to detail and the way they are able to draw you into the experience is great. You will learn a great deal about how things work and the history of "old school" technology. Crafts and skills our society is loosing. All ages will appreciate this place. You will be outside with tons of walking... More
