This is a destination museum. It is on par with the Smithsonian museums and probably better if you are interested in automobiles. We arrived at 9:30 and left around 5. This... read more

This is a destination museum. It is on par with the Smithsonian museums and probably better if you are interested in automobiles. We arrived at 9:30 and left around 5. This gave us plenty of time to take the Rouge plant tour, see a large screen 3D movie and see everything this great museum has to offer. The excellent museum... More

Have been to the Henry Ford / Village 3 times in 2016 with family and out of town guests. Loved every single visit. Great place to do your Christmas shopping (started in August during my last visit).

This fabulous museum showcases America's uniqueness and American history and ingenuity. Plan at least a full day, if not more. It is the best museum I have ever visited.

The building is HUGE...and so are the displays! Automobiles, as well as cultural icons associated with the automobiles. Planes and trains, too! And there's also a US history lesson, including suffrage and slavery. We managed to tour the museum in 4 hours....but could have stayed longer.

This is one of the very BEST museums that I have ever visited! First, to avoid confusion... "The Henry Ford" is actually the umbrella name for several museums...the Ford Museum, Greenfield Village, IMAX Theatre, Rouge Ford Factory (and the Henry Ford Estate which is currently closed for renovations). However much time you think that you'll need, double it... there is... More

The Henry Ford is the best collection of American Industrial and Cultural property there is. You can spend days in the museum looking at anything from delicate china patterns to a 2-6-6-6 "Allegheny" type locomotive weighing in at almost 400 Tons. The volume of items can be overwhelming at times. They add special exhibits from time to time providing new... More

This place is fantastic and fascinating for all ages. I was there from 11-5 to see it all. There's something for everyone: Giant train & large model train town; lunch in an original diner; JFK Limo; record holding salt flats car; various early cars, campers & trucks and Farm Equipment; classic cars; Rosa Parks Bus that you can get on;...

We had several hours before we had to head home and what a wonderful experience ! Spent 3 hours and stepped back in time. Trains, cars and even a room from Holiday Inn ! A great assortment of history under one roof. The building was constructed in 1929 and is a work of art itself!
