Pretty interesting attraction for a quick look inside the Ren Cen.

It's interesting that GM World HQ is in downtown Detroit while so many businesses try to leave, while they stay. I admire that and think that this is part of the turn around for... read more

I love this place. Food court, display of new and upcoming vehicles and just the building itself is amazing. Oh and it has a Starbucks of course! I always take our exchange students here and take them out by the river for pictures with Canada in the background. They are totally amazed how you can see another country from there.... More

It's interesting that GM World HQ is in downtown Detroit while so many businesses try to leave, while they stay. I admire that and think that this is part of the turn around for Detroit. This attraction is ok. You get to see some of the latest models of GM vehicles which is interesting. There is a lot to see... More

There's really nothing of value here. This is a tiny display at the base of one of the towers of Detroit's Renaissance Center, GM's World Headquarters. They have a few cars, some plaques on display, occasionally a tour guide to answer questions. It's really a waste. Go to the Henry Ford instead.

We were in town for the auto show and unfortunately missed the tour of this building. We did go anyway and look at the vehicles. Small selection. One each of a lot of models mostly decked out with options. Interesting contrast from the auto show because there was hardly anyone there. If you are interested in a Gm you can... More

We enjoy coming to autoworld to check out the year's new production line. We all got to sit in the 2015 Camaro!

We planed to spend about an hour here but ended up spent more than 2 hours enjoying different part of the complex. This building itself had many upgrades, most noticeably is the front entrance with a football shape glass and steel enclosure. In the lobby visitors are being greeted by 2 gigantic panel of green glasses, they bend like waves... More

Fantastic view of the Lake and Windsor, Canada from the walk. Inside an spectacular show room of vehicles from the past, present, and future development concepts.

A collection of GM cars. Mostly the current models, but the most interesting is the older cars on display. Will only take a few minutes. Next to the Renaissance Plaza food court.
