If you love history you must visit the Henry Ford. It was exceptional. I had not been since I was a child so it was great to see the collection grow. To see and sit in the Rosa Parks bus and hear the wonderful commentary in her own voice was priceless. The presidential limos, car and transport exhibits were all... More

We spent a full day in The Henry Ford Museum and just scratched the surface. Every time I go to this museum I am amazed at how much they have in here. The museum is laiid out so well, you can walk from exhibits about transportation, from horse drawn carriages to the most futuristic cars ever designed. They have the... More

Went to the plant and the museum with grandson and family. Watching the assembly line was fascinating. Museum was outstanding. Spend two hours at the plant and three hours at the museum.

Henry Ford museum is one of my most favorite museum's in the world. It is a well maintained museum with spectacular items from the past. Preserved railway engines, vintage cars, presidential vehicles, airplanes etc all were delight at see and know more about. All items had a brief yet educational description. This ensured I got the right amount of information... More

I have visited twice now, and both times were excellent. Even though the factory was on it's scheduled maintenance, it was easily the most interesting part of the visit. Seeing how they make Ford F-150s really puts the auto industry in perspective. All the guides during the tour were helpful and full or information about the Rouge Plant. Very cool!... More

It was amazing. I wish we had more time. So much to see and enjoy and learn. It was fun to war in the diner there, although the food was unimpressive. But to sit on THE Rosa Parks Bus, to see the chair Lincoln was shot in... all fascinating and moving.

The village has a nice atmosphere. It is very clean with a great playground for kids. Some buildings have air conditioning while others do not. The village in general is pretty stroller friendly except for some of the houses having stairs. The museum is a great place to walk and enjoy time in any season. During the Christmas season, the...

Whether you're interested in old cars, planes, trains, farming equipment, furniture, various machines and antiques of all kinds, you will find lots to see and explore. One of the most unusual attractions here is the Dymaxion House, which is a very... More

This museum is perfect for car enthusiasts. It also has a surprising array of Wright Brothers items and furniture from different eras. It is spacious and well organized. The family can have an enjoyable time all on one level. There are several restaurants on site to have a meal that are not terribly expensive, for a museum.
