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...

Greenfield Village was the highlight of our recent trip to Dearborn. There is so much to see and do, while learning more about what life was like during the simpler times of yesteryear. There something to offer for kids of all ages, making it a must-visit destination for any families living or visiting in the area.

Turning the clock back to a less stressful time Greenfield Village transports the visitor to the turn of the century. This isn't Disney. So the kids may get fidgety looking for rides and broadway caliber shows. This is.... walks through a park, riding a Model T and discovering what the country was like 100 years ago. Lots of walking on... More

This was our first trip to the village and we will be back. We spent the entire day there and still feel like we missed some things. We bought the wristbands for all day access to the "rides" at the village. It was awesome to ride in the Model T and we really enjoyed the horse drawn bus. My 3... More

Ride the train all around the perimeter first to get an idea of the entire village. Train is a coal driven one...neat when it fills with coal like in 1880's. Ride a Model T and just enjoy all the sites...spend the day.

So many historical delights moved to one location! We enjoyed seeing the Wright Brothers original projects and designs as well as the brilliant works of Thomas Edison. One of my favorite things to journey through was the Henry Ford Museum. Boy, the classics you can drool over in that place! We rode in 1914 Ford Wooden station wagon, an original!... More

This is a side attraction and on the same property as the Henry Ford museum. There is a fully working farm, Henry Ford's childhood home, the Wright Brothers' childhood home, antique cars to be driven around in and food, food and more food. Great for kids. There is also a full size train you can ride.

Where else can you take in Edison's lab, the homes of Noah Webster, Robert Frost and the Wright Brothers? It is a wonderful trip back into time!

This was a really cool place to visit. In one afternoon, we heard a talk by Thomas Edison and got to see his laboratory, we saw the Wright Brother's cycle shop and an early version of the Wright Flyer, we played turn of the century games on the large field, and interacted with many of the very friendly and informative...
