This place is unreal, the number and variety of exhibits is really impressive. Make sure you allow plenty of time, there is so much to see. I attended a business dinner and the catering was of a very high standard. Being able to wander around the museum and then enjoy a sit down dinner was really good.

Stopped in on a whim, so glad we did! Not just a "Ford " museum but a place that celebrates all of America's innovations. Technology, Aviation, furniture, farm equipment, industrial inventions....and of course, cars! You could easily spend a whole day here especially if you also visit the village. What a fantastic treasure....and beautifully restored and maintained. Don't miss it!

This is our first time visiting The Henry Ford and we absolutely loved the museum. We spent 4.5 hours in the museum and could have spent another 4.5 hours. Our biggest complaint is Lamey's Diner which is in the museum. First, there are very very limited choices. I think they had only 5 items on the menu and nothing for... More

Our outing was the Henry Ford Museum Of American Innovation, in Dearborn, Michigan. We were able to view the history of ford automobiles, including past presidents motor cars, the bus that Rosa Parks was on that was part of the Civil Rights Movement. We marveled over the beautiful antique furniture and ate a delicious lunch at the on site restaurant.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We visited two days - the first to enjoy the village and the second to see the museum. Everything was clean and in good repair. Employees were helpful. Almost all exhibits were up to date, relevant and in excellent shape.

Fantastic we did not get through it all in one day ,however we did include a tour of the truck plant ,a very worthwhile thing to do. Take the time and do this Museum to see how Henry Ford revolutionized America.

We were expecting the history of Ford automobiles in the US. We got that but also cars from other US and even foreign manufacturers. All sorts of trucks, trains, and airplanes. Steam turbines, farm equipment and even a futuristic house from the past. Plan to spend at least 3 hours in the museum to really enjoy it.

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
