Great visit - here are some tips to get more out of it

First of all, this is well worth a visit, but I recommend a full day just for the village. You need a separate day from the Henry Ford Museum. There is simply too much to do to... read more

First of all, this is well worth a visit, but I recommend a full day just for the village. You need a separate day from the Henry Ford Museum. There is simply too much to do to pack into one day, and because this place is so big, there is a lot of walking. You need to know that even... More

History and Americana deluxe. Spend a day in the most pleasant surroundings. The historic homes and buildings give a real insight into what the lives of people were like in the past. The people within the exhibits in period clothing, performing their chores are so informative. Not in a hokey, way, but will actually engage in conversation about what life... More

Located in Dearborn, Michigan on the large Henry Ford complex. Greenfield village is a walk back into time. Model T vehicles driving up and down the history laden village street, sharing the road with horse drawn carriages. Historic buildings from Wright brother, Henry Ford shop where he started his first drive, a reenactment play of day in the life at... More

This is a huge area. It will take you a whole day to do it all. Loved the old cars and horse drawn wagons. The buildings placed there were great and very interesting. Henry Ford was an interesting man.

Travel through time and visit the homes of the Fords , Firestones and Wright Brothers just to name a few. Edison's Menlo Park is there to explore. Thank goodness Henry Ford saved so many buildings. Interpreters are dressed in period appropriate clothing. We had lunch at the Eagle Tavern. The dining room is appropriate for the time frame as is... More

I had been told that this place is awesome, and the reviews agreed, but I think that my family and I did not know what to expect. This is a model town set up by Henry Ford in 1929 as a way of preserving for posterity what the world looked like back then. It is wonderfully done, with plenty of... More

This place was amazing ..... The Village creators went to great lengths to acquire buildings, autos, trains, farm equipment, and anything else you can imagine to create a walk thru village that displays everything that is American. Model T's driving through the streets, people in period clothing, live demos, guides in each building that actually knew what they were talking... More

This is one of the most exceptional historic parks we have ever been to and we have done many! We couldn't see it all in one day. Loved the steam train and walking the grounds and touring so many historic sites of diverse timeframes and features. Taking in the historic baseball game was really cool as well. A first rate...
