Any top tips?

There is so much to see and do at The Henry Ford, there really is no set amount of time spent that will suit every visitor. They suggest combo deals and special offer tickets, including the Museum Insider's Tour, if you are interested in a “deep dive” into all of the exhibitions and programs. However, you do not need much time at all to be inspired by their brand of history—a couple of well-placed hours are all it takes for a great visit
