Its an all day affair, all of the homes, workshops, etc. have people dressed in period costume and give you the history of... More

There are so many fantastic buildings to see here! It takes a full day to walk around and see everything in as the property is quite extensive. The buildings have either been moved here from other locations or are replicas of the original, but be prepared to see everything from Henry Ford's home to the Wright Brothers' house to Thomas...

So many of you take your family to experience "fake" history at places like Epcot, etc. So, my recommendation is go visit the real thing. Where else can your children/family step into the real homes of some of Americas great inventors, ride a REAL model T, ride an authentic steam engine, etc etc etc. We visited in late October and...

I visited Greenfield Village when I was quite a bit younger and it sat in my mind as a really fun place. My husband was not too keen on visiting but his mind changed in no time. It is so well put together, kept, and educational! Most of a day is about the right length.

If you like history at all, this is one place not to miss. Broken up into several sections, you can visit working farms, Edison's Menlo Park Lab, famous homes ride a steam train and eat some old time cooking. There are ever changing skits and re enactments. Old time baseball is played on summer weekends. Back when players did not... More

No crowds at the village and the costumed staff were very knowledgeable. Loved all of the original buildings that were moved from other locations.

We went for trick or treating the weekend before Halloween. It was very busy, almost too busy. Walking in herd like conditions for the first few stops, making it hard to get close up to exhibits. It did thin out a little later. Still worth it though, would go try again a little further from Halloween.

After touring the Henry Ford Museum earlier in the day, we all decided to do Greenfield Village. A step back in time for sure. People dressed in costume gave a real effect atmosphere in most of the buildings, and some had stories to tell. The ones we talked to, talked to us like we were neighbors and they were telling...
