Greenfield Village, Dearborn

4.7
#2 of 11 in Things to do in Dearborn
Within the enormous Henry Ford museum complex, Greenfield Village is its own world. Learn how Americans have lived since the founding of the country as you wander through the historical buildings. You can visit Thomas Edison's laboratory, the Wright brothers' workshop, and more. In some of the 17th-century buildings, you can meet costumed "locals" in the midst of village tasks, such as farming, sewing, cooking, glass-blowing, and pottery. If you get hungry, try a typical 19th-century meal served by traditionally dressed restaurant staff at the Eagle Tavern, a restaurant that's been here since 1831. You can even ride a steam-engine train or a vintage car. Plan to see Greenfield Village and other attractions that appeal to you using our Dearborn itinerary builder .

  • It's good sometimes to get back into the past. Very large village with reconstitution of real houses (moved to this place) and habit of era for the people who work there. Very informative also.

And it allows you to see the village a little differently even if the tour goes a little too fast for my taste
