Create an itinerary including The Henry Ford
The Henry Ford is a large indoor and outdoor museum complex featuring historical Americana. It is named after its founder, the automobile industrialist Henry Ford, who, in his own words, wanted to produce a record of "American life as lived." See John F. Kennedy’s presidential limousine, a Wright flyer replica, the chair President Lincoln was sitting in when he was assassinated, the Rosa Parks bus, and more. Outside you can explore the Greenfield Village: over 100 historical buildings were moved here and arranged in a village setting to show how Americans have lived and worked since the founding of the country. Watch a craft demonstration, such as pottery or glassblowing. It is a good idea to buy tickets for the on-site IMAX theater in advance.

  • The museum is fascinating with so much to see from the bus that Rosa Parks rode to the giant steam engine train. I would definitely recommend a visit to the Henry Ford Museum.

  • I have been here many times and it is always a fun day! So much to look at and learn, it really is amazing. I love the Allegheny locomotive and the flight section is entertaining. I had no idea Ford tried to build planes. It has always been clean and the staff friendly and helpful. They had a Tiffany exhibit going the last time we visited and it was truly gorgeous.
  • I love this place! The cars, trains, planes, and other misc items throughout the museum are quite worth checking out. It is fascinating to see the evolution of industry and take a peek at what could be in store for the future. The layout here is very spacious, so you never really feel cramped or rushed. Everything is well kept and clean. Completely worth the visit.
