It is a great place to go, regardless of age. There is so much to see (such as glass-blowing, pottery-making, and millinery), and so much to do/eat. You can also see the courthouse where Abraham Lincoln argued, as well as the childhood home of the Wright Brothers. Be sure to take advantage of riding in the old Model T's around... More

We were lucky the day of our visit. Being memorial weekend the village was honoring those in the past and present. Civil war reenactments were scattered throughout and there was something for everyone in our family to enjoy. My daughter made an iMovie for a Civil War presentation at school. Talk about perfect timing. This was our second visit and... More

A lot of area to cover walking. Please be prepared to do a lot of walking by wearing comfortable shoes. A very interesting walk back in time. So educational and interesting. I would take the steam engine train ride around the park first. This way you can see all the village before you start exploring.

Take a day and travel back in time. Check out pieces of history that Henry Ford collected from around the world. It's beautiful to walk through and to peek into buildings from our past. It's great for walking although they have other modes of transport. Skip the additional transportation charge and pay as you go because you will save money.... More

We have been to Greenfield Village several times. This time was no exception, it was a very enjoyable day. Only problem was availability of parking.

So much to see. This was literally a walk back in time, a long walk. Opting for the transportation upgrade would have been a good idea to enjoy the old train, horse and vintage cars. The hosts and hostesses in period dress were very nice, intelligent and interesting. Try to plan your trip to enjoy the special presentations given periodically... More

Even though it was raining during our visit, we enjoyed going through the numerous buildings to see how things were made in the 'old days'. There is lots to see, such as antique cars and a train to ride, a carousel, Edison's lab and more. There were several groups of school kids visiting on the day that we were there... More

Happy to say we made a great decision to buy our membership on the civil war reenactment weekend. Horses, soldiers, and camps. Oh my! Too much to do in one day.

Awesome place. We're going to go back.... but next time we will do the train ride as a preview to decided where to start... rather than last. That was our mistake but it would have been nice if they would have advised us to do the train first and start at the 'end' of the park, working our way forward.
