After several years of seeing this program advertised, I was eager to partake of it. Since I live in Grand Rapids, two+ hours away, it's a bit challenging to justify the drive. However, an IKEA special order pick-up provided the opportunity on a Thursday night. Overall it was a mixed experience for me, contrasting several charming and memorable touches with... More

To say that we were amazed would be an understatement. It was like you stepped back in time. Walking through Henry Fords or the Wright brother's childhood homes, riding in a model T, the carolers are just a few of the amazing things we did. This is something we are already looking forward to for next year.

My wife, two friends and I went to Greenfield Village for the annual "Holiday Nights" event. We've now been there in the summer, fall and winter and I think that the Holiday Nights event is my favorite. All of the attractions/exhibits were not open but there was still so much to see, we ran out of time. If I have... More

Second time we have attended this event. Hard to find any fault when they go all out to make your visit special from the time you enter the gates. On this night it was cold, windy but that did not spoil the Christmas amosphere. Very special time of the year, very special event. Something you will remember for a long,... More

We went to the village for the holiday nights celebration. We dined at The Eagle Tavern and had a great time at the 1850's style dinner. My whole family particularly enjoys this event. Lots of great food and fun!

We visited this amazing complex one day before they close it for winter and enjoyed it tremendously. We have not heard about it before, but Greenfield Village, put together by Henry Ford, was certainly a highlight of our visit to Detroit area. There are three major attractions offered by the Henry Ford museum complex: Henry Ford Museum, Greenfield Village and... More

Greenfield Village is a wonderful place to spend some hours going thru homes of historical figures. It amazes me how much has changed, especially in the kitchens. This year we went to the Halloween evening. We got the very first time, which kept the crowds down and it was still light enough for the little ones in our group (2... More

The docents at Greenfield Village are enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. It is a beautiful walking museum. It was very cold the day we visited but because you are in and out of buildings we were not uncomfortable. There is a little candy shoppe that sells great hot chocolate for a little warm up.

If you ever want to experience a "true" Christmas evening take the time to go to Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village, Dearborn Mich. The fact that you must book in late August to secure a dinner spot speaks volumes. Without giving away too much of the magic, just imagine Christmas in a simpler, less commercialized way. Can you see it... More
