The museum and Ford assembly plant tours are a must see! We did not have time to go to the village because it was only open at night at this time of the year. Plan on a full day to do these 2 in. People are very friendly and very informative!

Good parking & friendly greeting. $6 parking. Ask for AAA discount. We didn't get to see the village (bit too cold for us that day). Very impressive displays & very clean. Definitely worth the trip.

Went here to kill some time before the hockey game in Detroit. You don't have to love fords to go to this museum. Had not only cars , but trains, airplanes, fashion, and houses and how time and technology helped us and our everyday objects evolve. Very cool and quiet place. Took about two hours to go through most of... More

Here is an indoor museum with an incredible collection of cars, trucks, trains, and planes through modern history (and they're not just Fords!). You get up close and in many cases, actually on the exhibits.

Tons of exhibits in the museum. Lots of hands on learning, Lots of History, Ford has combined this whole experience with Greenfield Village tours and the Rouge Assembly Plant Tour. You can spend a whole day here and not see it all. Well worth the visit no matter what your interests. As a pilot I spent a lot of time... More

I have to admit I wasn't overly excited when I heard we were going to the Henry Ford Museum but what a great surprise!!!! Loved it and wish we had been able to stay about another 3 hours or more! Plan on a full day of fun things for everyone. There were all age groups enjoying the different displays, restaurants... More

Because of the different types of displays get place to learn about the progression of industrial history. The updated welcome center is a nice addition.

Acres of just about everything American on the planet that was ever driven, rode, sat on or in some cases lived in. You could spend days on end here. LOTS of spots to sit down while exploring but be prepared to surrounded by kids on school trips. Great gift shop but it is ridiculously expensive to shop in. ($100 for... More
