“The museum (not the village)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

(the picture associated with The Henry Ford is wrong - it's a huge, huge museum of ... everything that America makes, seems like. If you're interested in the history of anything ... railroad, guns, clothes, cooking utensils, whatever - this place will keep you absorbed for hours. Do not expect to see it all. If you don't want to read the captions and really look at the objects, jump directly to the locomotive or ... just go. I've never been anywhere like it.

“Henry Ford Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

This museums was excellent! the 4 of us found many interesting exhibits and attractions. The Model T exhibit was fantastic with a full size expoled view so you could see everything. This museum offered m interactive elements to keep the kids and adult alike entertained. Very well laid out with great acces to the exibits. You will find things like Washington's cot, the Wienermobile, vintage aircraft, Steam engines, Fords first entire power plant and the Alaegany Steam Eegine. The village was not open until next week but looked like a great time. That will take another whole day and then there is the Rouge factory tour we did not get to. So lots to see a fair price and you walk away in ah.

Good variety of things to see. Pleasant help with tickets, in the merchandise store, and restaurant. Enjoyed the Rosa Parks bus, Lincoln chair, Kennedy limo and the cars.
