Lots of exhibits, including trains, planes, and automobiles. Other offerings included one-of-a-kind exhibits, such as presidential automobiles.

“tons to see and do -- buy a membership!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We have been to the museum several times, and they have made even more improvements! The kids love helping assemble a real Model T. The exhibits are amazing -- the airplanes, trains, and of course, cars -- lots of cars!

We were spending 2 days (one in the museum and one in the village), so it was cheaper to buy a family membership pass. Then we can visit again this year essentially for free. Make sure you price it out! We found a coupon on the internet to get 10% off. And being a member gets you a discount at all the stores.

“Great place to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Young and old will enjoy this museum and the village. They have scaled down the museum so it could be air-conditioned. If you have just a little trouble walking you can probably do this museum. Very educational and they have built in some play areas for kids, and seating for the adults. I had been here when I was a child and loved it just as much now.

“Second Visit and Still Did Not Get Through It All!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

I do not know why I have waited so long to visit the Henry Ford. It is an amazing museum with a lot more than Fords and automobiles to see and discover.

This trip we stayed a long time in the manufacturing in North America exhibit. The old power plants and steam power displays are incredible!! Too much to see and appreciate in one day.

We will be going back!
