    Has to be one of the most involved biggest museums ever. Besides cars it had whole bunch of history. You need 2 trips to finish it. The gift shop was cool. So many exhibits def a must do. Loved it

    The BEST part of our vacation. Pricey, but if you stay in the main building, $56 for a family of 3 + parking. You could easily spend 6+ hours roaming around. In the long run, good bang for the buck.

    An absolute must! Do a factory tour as well- F150 assembly line is simply mesmerizing! Museum has the largest collection of retro cars, engines etc. plan 2-3 hours to see everything

    Must-see. A unique, fun, & very worthwhile place. The recently refurbished Driving America exhibit is awesome. Check out the Dymaxion House for something quirky.

    If you're an early bird, make sure to get the chocolate carrot muffin at Lamy's Diner, which is located inside the museum.

    Best museum ever! It's not a Ford museum, but an American history museum. Fantastic variety of original pieces of history.

    Lots of automotive memorabilia, locomotives, presidential limousines. Neat exhibits dedicated to inventors and innovation. Take the time to explore this fascinating museum.

    Amazing collection of technology (and a bit of culture) from the Industrial Revolution onward. Give yourself the better part of a day to soak it all in. You can always lunch at the Weinermobile Café!

    Did you know? Henry Ford began his collection in the 1910s. He focused on common objects used in everyday life because he thought history focused too much on wars and politics. Read more

    Best museum of all over the place, renewed on 2012 the car collection is astounding. Tip: go car exhibition first then the rest. Is quicker.

    Greenfield Village and Henry Ford Museum are my among favorite places in Michigan. Love Edison's lab and the boarding house brought in from their original location.

    If you go to the "Made in America - Power" section, there's a display case with some strange artifacts, including Edison's Last Breath and a death mask of Tesla.

    My boys love the Ford! Every trip, they make a beeline for the trains and airplanes. They always want to eat at the Michigan Cafe- great food. And don't miss the Rouge Plant tour.

    Have lunch @ the Weiner Dog Cafe - then have your picture made in front of the original weinermobile or make a mold to take home with you. Can even buy a toy weinermobile in the gift shop next to cafe

    Interesting stuff if you like industrial history. The displays change, they only display a very small part of their stock at a time.

    While Autos in American Life is getting a facelift, check out the Dymaxion House, the Highland Park engines, and the Rosa Parks Bus. You still need more than a day to see all the awesome!
