Growing up in New England I had never heard of Greenfield Village. Had I known about it, I would have visited sooner. It's fabulous! If you've not yet visited, put it on your "Must Do" list soon!

Greenfield Village is a living history exhibit. Go on a nice day as there is plenty of walking to be done. There is plenty to see and do as actors replicate activities in a past era. Some of the stuff here is really amazing. You can take a Model T ride, Walk through the original Ford plant, see glassblowers making... More

What a treat for the whole family! We took the train excursion around the village first to see what we would want to go back and see up close and personal. Before we left the village, we rode the train again! Vintage cars everywhere, museums, shops, activities galore. Visit Henry Ford's boyhood home, a plantation, gift shops, and eateries, too.... More

My favor activity was when for only $5.00 I was able to make a brass candle stick on a 1917 lathe. A ride in a a Model T was fun. The talent of the craft persons amazing. Educational and entertaining.

Loved walking around and participating in 1800s life. We really enjoyed the experience. Loved that you could purchase items that are made in the shops.

Henry ford has brought together historic buildings to create a unique village. Preserving our history in a beautiful village out of the turn of the century. He has brought the Wright Brothers Cycle shop where the first successful airplane was built. The Wright family home is also here. Edison's Menlo Park Lab where the phonograph and electric light were developed.... More

We changed our vacation plans to allow a two day stay to cover The Henry Ford and Greenfield Village. You could cover both in one day but if you've got the time two days is really better. This a large village so better bring your walking shoes. The village is set in several different era's including Thomas Edison's labs, homes... More

There is a bus that's complimentary but it's easy to walk although there is a lot to see. The train and old cars cost extra to ride. We did the village and museum in one day but a history buff could easily spend 2 days here.

This is our fourth visit to Greenfield Village/Henry Ford. We travel six hours each year to visit. Love the atmosphere--it's a time warp. The last three years we've come during the old car weekend (newest car is 1932) and are transported back in time with costumed drivers and cops and music. Will return again.

Wander around the Village at your own pace and visit the buildings learning about Ford and Edison. There are Model T cars and horse drawn carriages also an old fashioned train all of which are available to take a ride (at an additional cost). There is plenty to see and lots of walking as the village is very large so... More
