I went to Greenfield Village 15 years ago while in Detroit for business and vowed I would come back with my wife. We spent 2 full days with most of the time in the village and the remaining time at the Henry Ford museum (that is another review). If you like History, Famous Inventors or "how did they do it",...

Very interesting and informative and nice outdoor setting. The "host" at each historical site was extremely knowledgeable as well.

a wonderful place to visit. Make sure to pay the extra fee so you can ride the train, horse-drawn carriage, bus, and be driven in a Model T. Great insight into the inventors: Ford, the Wright Brothers, Firestone, Edison.

We didn't expect to visit such an amazing museum. The Greenfield village, next to Ford museum, deserves a 5 stars. Everything is so interesting, cultural, skills, techniques, architectures, etc. People are friendly and always happy to share their skills and knowledge. We had a wonderful day, just regret it was too short. Plan a whole day, we were there 5... More

Amazing place, amazing history. Like a historical theme park without roller coasters (has candy, trains, Model Ts, and Buses). If possible to get into, the camp here is stellar.

Although the museum is situated in a large area, its design makes it look like a bucolic village and allows you to see important buildings from American history and to learn about inventions, industrial advances, literary figures, farming, silk worms ... and more. Each building has experts who share stories about the historical significance of the site and the people... More

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.
