Henry Ford Museum
Dearborn's Henry Ford Museum offers a mesmerizing history of America as displayed in the collection that changed the culture of the nation and the world. The museum has a 1909 Ford Model T and the bus Rosa Parks made famous, but it doesn't just concentrate on cars; it has a locomotive, a 1930s kitchen and the chair in which Abraham Lincoln was assassinated along with other artifacts from the realms of transportation, manufacturing, domestic life, technology and entertainment. When here, a visit to the in-house Henry Ford IMAX Theatre offers good entertainment and relaxation.
SNEAKY way to charge for parking. you pull in & think it's free. LOTS not clearly marked. Is there any free parking? the Titantic display was NOT WORTH $10. more on top of $17. admission to museum. Titantic display was very poorly lit and would have been more enjoyable if people could SEE the items and be able to read the descriptions. cluttered with many wheelchairs and limiting access to many areas in the display. OVERPRICED AND POORLY LIT TITANTIC. rest of museum is good but nothing i'd share with a friend. glad i went alone. MADE IN CHINA GIFTSHOP was the worst. c'mon people we are pourly our hard earned money into FORD MOTOR and they are paying CHINA. dumb way to do business. UNAmerican. :-(
We found that we needed one day for The Henry Ford, and one day for Greenfield village. Our day was in the 90's which is almost too warm to enjoy all the walking and types of transportation in the village, (Model t's, Horse and enclosed wagons, antique horse drawn vehicles, steam engine train, but we managed. Both areas will more than keep you interested if you like history. I loved seeing the living history areas, people in full period costume and character everywhere! They all treat the guests of both places like royalty. I highly recommend a visit!
We usually go to Henry Ford Museum during the winter months when Greenfield Village is closed. It is great to walk around inside this huge museum and compare yourself to the size of the huge trains and walk around inside the old Dimaxian House and see what would have been modern convienence back then.
We drove over from Kalamazoo for a long weekend. We visited the museum, the village and did the factory tour. It was great. So much to see. My husband uses a mobility scooter and we found the facility to be very handicap accessable. we especially enjoyed seeing the Rosa Parks bus and Kennedy's limo.
We are hoping to go back next summer and spend more time in the village.
What a wonderful feeling being able to see, and touch america's history of a great man President John F. Kennedy. While others move on in life after the horrible tragic day, but for some reason his car remains frozen in time.
This is a must-see if you're in the Detroit area. Fun for all - even the kiddies will like it. If you're an auto buff, this is the jackpot and if you drive a Ford, then you'll really appreciate your 'world car'! We really enjoyed it. The only drawback was that the snack bars were shut & it can take a few hours in there.
If you go to the H F M and greenfield village , give yourself at least 2 full days to see everything. There is so much history and you can see so much for really not that much money to go into these two fasinating places. There is an authentic old-fashion baseball game played in the summer. A++
Typically museums bore me, but not this one. I grew up near the Detroit area, so I've been to the Henry Ford Museum more times than I can count and there is a reason why, it's the best! It's not just about cars, it's about pop culture, American history, and of course planes, trains, and automobiles. And they even have an IMAX theater. If you ever visit the Detroit or SE Michigan area, you have to make it a point to visit.
This was without a shadow of a doubt the best museum I've ever been to! Even if you're not into cars, there's much more to see. It's so big, you can wander for hours, but not get lost. I've been to the Smithsonian in Washington D.C., and I was more impressed by the Ford Museum.
The Henry Ford Museum told its story without the guides even having to speak!! The flood line was unbelievable. The fact that they slept in dif beds and used the one bed on the balcony for SPECIAL nights was a good idea ha!! The view and the woodwork, the machinery and the walkway by the river ...it was all so beautiful. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. I will be sure to visit again soon! Thank you for an experience I will never forget!
