Beautiful examples of classic cars with clear interesting information on motoring. Past presidents' cars, several planes and other interesting displays reflecting life at different times in the USA.

I have a membership to the Henry Ford and visit at least once a week. For a museum they are always changing things up the presenters are friendly and knowledgeable I never tier of listening to them.

Great museum. They have everything inside one building! Very easy to maneuver and see all of the exhibits. My favorite were the trains. Truly a must see! I also paid to go through Greenfield Village. It was nice.

The museum has collected anything and everything you can remember since you can remember, that IS American. Don't miss the Kennedy car it alone is worth the price of admission.

Spent the day here. Very nice, clean museum. Staff all excellent and knowledgeable and eager to share their knowledge. We went on a Monday and it was not overly crowded. Lots of interesting artifacts and more than cars! Very impressed with Mr. Ford's vision!

This is an amazing museum about Henry Ford and all that he did and accomplished. You need to set a whole day aside for this and we'll worth the time.

Incredible museum, displays cover a wide range of categories. Planes, trains, automobiles, large farm equipment,furniture,clocks just amazing. Although large it is well layed out and you don't miss anything.

I love coming here sometimes after work and look at all the cool antiques and items that they have here. I like the dioramas that show a small slice of life from time is gone by.

We took our kids to the Henry Ford over Labor Day and spent an entire day at Greenfield Village and the Museum. Beginning just after 9:00 AM we arrive first at Greenfield Village. Since the park had just opened, there were very few people there and the park hosts were very attentive and spent a lot of time with us.... More
