Relived our youth on the carousel
House tours were very educational
Learned what a creative, inspiring, and intelligent man Henry Ford was!
We enjoyed eating dinner at the restaurant there
We landed to meet family there ended up with 4 families. We walked around and enjoyed the choral singing as well as the quartets and various ensembles around the property. It was a lot to take in, such a fun time. We took part in...More
We went here for the first time during their Holiday Nights. Even though it was cold and rainy, the show went on. The kids’ highlights were the free ride in a Model T (super-friendly drivers) and sitting in front of the fireplace at the courthouse...More
This was our first Holiday Nights visit. So glad we came. Greenfield Village goes all out for this wonderful Christmas celebration. There was so much to do i can’t even explain it all. Every building is decorated and staffed. There was Model T rides, carriage...More

My family has been attended Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village for 6 years and it has always been a time we eagerly look forward to and remember. It is a perfect way to begin the Christmas festivities. Lanterns, Mummers, couples wishing you a merry Christmas,...More
I love this place all year and all parts of it. The museum I could get lost in for hours, the Rouge plant is so cool and the village is fun during the balmy summer to the cold chill of winter. We did the greenfield...More
Greenfield Village and the Henry Ford Museum may very well be my favorite places in the world. Full of old words and dusty artifacts, they breathe history, but unlike many museums, they encourage you to live in the glory of the past, too.
History everywhere - take the train, the early Ford turn of the century autos, horse and buggy ride, or just walk everywhere.
Also visit the variety of historic homes in Greenfield Village. Entertaining for young children too. If you plan to visit more than once,...More

Henry Ford: Which has the most “Americana”? (8 Replies)
We are a European couple visiting the Henry Ford complex in mid-September with a view to getting a feel for America’s past. We are not especially interested in cars. Would we do right to give priority to Greenfield Village (a full day) over the Museum (half a day)? My grandfather worked in Ford from 1930 to 1954 (and as a prominent UAW organiser was often opposed to Henry Ford!). I had thought of doing the Rouge factory tour but from what I have read it is a totally different world from...More

I would choose Greenfield Village. If the weather is good.
How many days (2 Replies)
My husband and I are thinking about taking a side trip to Dearborn on our annual trek to visit family in the midwest. How many days would you recommend to visit the Henry Ford, Greenfield Village, and the Rouge Factory Tour? We'll be going in early June.

Hello subrice, The amount of time it takes to see the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village depends a lot on your interest and the pace you use to see and read things. If you are the type of people that likes to read about each exhibit and take your time, I would say a day at each place is what you should figure.
Looking for a hotel in Dearborn/Detroit area with... (3 Replies)
I'm looking for a hotel in the Dearborn or Detroit area (we have tickets for Greenfield Village, but want to go to Windsor as well) that has in-room refrigerators either standard or request-able. I don't know how to search for that, but I need one for medical reasons. I don't want to pay an arm and a leg, but I want to be in a safe area.

From a safety viewpoint, just about any of the name brand hotels in Dearborn or in downtown Detroit would be fine. Closest to Greenfield Village is the Dearborn Inn (walking distance). For good rates, you might try Hotwire or Priceline. I have had good luck with both. though I don't know that you can specify refrigerators under criteria. There isn't a totally reliable way to be certain about the availability of in-room refrigerators (though some hotels do list them under amenities). My...More
