We have had a membership to The Henry Ford most of the time since 1992. There is something for every age group. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. It's the most peaceful, well organized, best value for my time and money. I have never regretted one minute spent at The Henry Ford unlike most other places that I have... More

The Henry Ford has so much to see! The Henry Ford is made up of three separate venues - Greenfield Village, The Henry Ford Museum, and the Ford Rouge Factory Tour. Each is unique and has many special events, such as Maker Faire Detroit; Old Car Festival; Motor Muster; Tinker, Hack, Invent; Ragtime Festival; Holiday Nights; and many more. The... More

The major draw of this museum is the automotive industry history. They have lots of interesting cars and items related to that. There is a lot more here, from machinery to silverware. The layout is a little strange at times, but there is a lot to see.

I found everyone i spoke with to be very knowledgeable. My mom is a retired teacher and she kept commenting on how she wishes she could have bought... More

Return again to The Henry. Every employee was friendly, went out of their way to help and genuinely seemed appreciative of a thank you. There is a system where you can give an acknowledgment card for exceptional service the employees can turn in, a pack of them in your room. Everything from room, pool, meeting rooms, dining, was clean and... More

We have been to a lot of museums and historical sites including all of the Smithsonians multiple times. We heard about "The Henry Ford" from a friend and thought it would be a nice little "car show". Boy were we wrong! The Henry Ford is by far better than the American History Museum. There are trains, cars, tractors, Rosa Parks... More

If you are headed to Detroit, the museum complex is a 25 minute ride outside the city. It's a phenomenal collection of Americana. The cars and trains are very interesting, particularly Kennedy's limo. We loved the recreated homes' section. Take a stroll down memory lane and beyond.
