“Great place to go”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Young and old will enjoy this museum and the village. They have scaled down the museum so it could be air-conditioned. If you have just a little trouble walking you can probably do this museum. Very educational and they have built in some play areas for kids, and seating for the adults. I had been here when I was a child and loved it just as much now.

“Second Visit and Still Did Not Get Through It All!!!!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

I do not know why I have waited so long to visit the Henry Ford. It is an amazing museum with a lot more than Fords and automobiles to see and discover.

This trip we stayed a long time in the manufacturing in North America exhibit. The old power plants and steam power displays are incredible!! Too much to see and appreciate in one day.

We will be going back!

“Excellent attempt to make musuem hands-on for little ones”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

I'm always a little worried about taking my toddler to a museum because his attention span only goes so far. I was hopeful about this museum because it contains many of the things my son loves such as trains, planes, and automobiles. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the museum also had several items meant to make the museum more hands-on for little ones. For example, there is a lego duplo area where my son could play with some legos when he got bored. There were also several vehicles that children could climb into to play pretend for a minute. My son had a nice experience, which is rare for a museum.

We had an awesome time with my grandson. It did not have as many carriages as it had a few years back but it was still amazing. They were have a car show which added to the excitement.

“very nice”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

A pleasant atraction, it is very nice, liked a lot.

But I found it a little too expensive: if you buy tickets for all attractions and for the whole family, you're going to spend more than U$ 150
