Trip Report A brief overview of Dearborn Michigan and the Henry Ford Museum

Jump to last reply

We just returned from a wonderful 2 day, 1 night stay in Dearborn. The Dearborn Inn gives a great 'Henry Ford Package". For $199.00 we stayed at the Inn, 2 tickets to the Henry Ford Museum, 2 tickets to Greenfield village, and 2 buffet breakfasts. And to top it off, I am a Marriot Rewards member so we were upgraded to the concierge level which also gave us hors-d-oeuvres from 5p to I think 7p complimentary, and a honor bar.

We toured the museum the first day which houses the car Kenndy was assassinated in and many of the first cars built. The second day we toured Greenfield Village and had a ten minute ride in an original 1918 Ford. We took the train around the village, had lunch in a period restaurant which only serves period, homemade food and walked thru many original buildings that have been moved brick by brick to Greenfield Village IE: the Wright Bros shop and many replica's for instance, Edison's lab, and the home of Brooker T Washington. It houses the boyhood home of Henry Ford and the boyhood home of Mcguffey sp? (Mcguffey's reader) A very interesting two days at a very reasonable cost.
