Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village have long been THE place to take our out of town guests and visitors; it always gets rave reviews. But we visit regularly ourselves, often combining it with a weekend getaway package at the fabulous & nearby Dearborn Inn. The touring exhibits are always first class (we especially enjoyed the Titanic and the Civil... More

Went on a Saturday afternoon, not too crowded. Haven't been here in 30 years but still remember some of the famous exhibits. The car Kennedy was riding in when he was shot, the chair from Ford's theatre that Lincoln was in. Had really in depth exhibits about civil rights and women's suffrage. Also had a really nice exhibition of the... More

Plan on staying more than a day if you want to see everything, well worth the experience. The train ride is a must as you can get on and off at different stops

If you're stuck in Detroit or around this is the place that can save your trip. An amazing estate with several indoor and outdoor activities for all ages. The highlights are the museum where you need around 2h, the factory tour ( book in advance) and mostly the outdoor village where you can spend a full day if weather permits.... More

The Henry Ford offers the Imax Theatre, the museum, Greenfield Village, and Ford Rouge Factory Tour. If you take Southfield Road, it turns into Southfield Freeway and you can take the Rotunda Drive exit. This is a great place to take family and out of town guest. There are great restaurants to choose from such as Andiamo, P.F. Changs, Benihana,... More

The museum is great with a huge amount of history in it from the beginning to today! My only complaint was it was a tad difficult to navigate considering stuff was everywhere. We took our 3 month old in the stroller and had no issues at all.

This is an interesting place. However it is quite pricey especially if there are several members in the family. There are both an inside and outside attractions.

Suitable for all ages. Specially for those interested in trains, old cars and presidential limousines. Recommend buying tickets online. Plan for three to four hours within the museum.

Carefully curated pieces reflecting the technology and leisure of America in its love affair with transportation. Automobiles of course, but locomotives and train cars, aircraft and stage coaches too, with domestic life considered as well. Dollhouses and kitchens of the past line up ahead of the futuristic Dymaxion house, and oh, by the way, here are the tractors and combines... More

..and even Agriculture Combines . The Space is huge , the size of 4football fields..all on one level....I especially liked the cars , like the Lincoln JFK drove, and other presidential limos as well as the airplane section. Ford gave up on building airplanes after his personal friend and pilot got killed in a crash..he saw its technology advancing so... More
