We visited Henry Ford Museum last year and purchased the combo ticket for Greenfield Village at the same time. We decided to make it a mini vacation with our grand nieces. I never knew how much of a humanitarian Henry Ford was until our visit. The village is filled with history Like Thomas Edison's lighting, authors, schooling, manufacturing, transportation and arts. Henry created and actually had several exhibits moved from their locations and reset exactly the way they were back in time. One example was a home Edison's lived in from New Jersey placed in the exact location to the factory itself. You can also tour the grounds in an actual model T, antique bus or steam engine train. There are attractions to please young ones and during the regular season plenty of concessions. Let them ride the 1913 carousel brought in from New York. Buy them some candy from a turn of the century general store sharing a building with the Wright Brothers air display and bicycle shop. It is a full day of exhibits so plan for it that way. It's an all day entertaining history lesson for those that can appreciate it.
