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

I was beyond surprised at the complexity of this museum. It had so many interesting pieces and was displayed so nicely. The amount of American history in this place was beyond my comprehension. Our daughter was 6 when we took her here and she could have stayed for days. She loved the presidential cars (including the one President Kennedy was... More

I am a car person, so I went for the cars. There is a good selection of cars and wandering amongst them was fascinating and I could have spent much more time doing so than the people with me were probably prepared to wait. I wasn't expecting the other exhibits, ranging from planes, to historical artifacts, to wood burning stoves.... More

This museum would appeal to just about everyone. I've been with young kids, teens, grandparents and alone. Everyone found something they enjoyed. Spent several hours could have stayed all day. It's got planes, trains and automobiles, farming, industrial era machines, historical items from the revolutionary war to present. JFK's automobile, the bus Rosa Parks rode, items owned by Lincoln and... More

In my view, the Henry Ford is best museum of its kind and sorely under advertised as a tourist attraction (because it’s associated with Detroit?). There is everything here to do with American inventiveness and Henry Ford’s brilliant entrepreneurship. The displays of automobiles and aircraft are both extraordinary and the section “With Liberty and Justice for All” should be a... More

I made my almost annual visit to the HFM today... Always an overwhelming variety of automobiles, airplanes, trains, tractors, etc to see and to love. History comes alive through the amazing variety of machines and accompanying stories. A must see for car lovers and history buffs. When the weather gets nice, a visit to Greenfield Village next door is highly... More

This museum has something for just about everyone! It takes a long time to see everything, but it's worth it. I took my family here today and we had a great visit. The only downer was the wait once we were seated at the diner. We got up and when to the American Dog House instead, which was really good... More

The Henry Ford museum is one of our family favorites on a rainy day or to bring out-of-town guests to see. It's elegant, silly, interesting, and even the static exhibits provide fun every single time we go. And there's the IMAX.

Lots of fun historical artifacts including the chair that Lincoln was shot in, presidential limos and other memorabilia, as well as locomotive, automotive, and aircraft items. It is worth a walk through at least once as an adult.
