I had a very good time at the Henry Ford museum in Dearborn. The Rouge factory tour is really impressive! To begin with a 3-d show very clearly presents how car are built today; then you do enter the real factory! amazing! Then there a 4 hour visiting time museum with not only cars but all of the American history... More

We toured the Henry Ford with a group of French people. The museum is great and offers a lot of exploration of technology and history. However, it is not friendly to non-English speakers. They had no French maps and the signs were in English only with no offers of pre-recorded programs in Foreign languages. That makes the museum an obstacle... More

I spent almost one day, and I'm not saturating to walk through the museum. A return in time between trains and other vehicles. I can not describe the place. It's a museum that if I could, I'd take it home with me.

Great Museum that has lots to see. Took us about 5 hours to go through. Many different things to see of different areas of innovation. Favorite was Dymaxion House. Only surviving one in the world! Food at cafes was a little expensive, but you can bring in your own food. Very unique things that you could not see anywhere. Maybe... More

I just came from The Auborn Cord Deusenberg museum a day before I visited The Henry Ford museum. I loved the former and was blown away by their collection. I wasn't expecting too much coming into the Henry Ford museum. I only allotted 2 hrs for the walk around and was looking forward to the Greenfield village. I was so... More
