“A great museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

This museum is well worth a few days. One day is not enough time. It is on par with the Smithsonian in Washington.

“One of America's Gems”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Don't miss visiting The Henry Ford. The Museum is devoted to American life from the early 1800's to today. They rotate exhibits, like the recent Titanic Exhibit, frequently.

“Spend a Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

There's a lot to see so make sure you plan for a full day. Well worth the visit. We especially enjoyed the trains, the old cars, and the steam engines.

“Incredible!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

How can you describe something that is so mind-boggling in it's scope and presentation? I think "WOW" sums it up pretty well. Plan to spend several hours to at least get an overview of all that's here. Comfortable shoes are a must!
