  • What an awesome piece of history! This is probably the best little museum for the true roots of Detroit and automobiles. The tour guides are incredibly knowledgeable, and the whole experience was just fantastic. I can't recommend this place enough!
  • Definitely recommend to go there when you're in Detroit! A museum in the original plant, displaying Ford cars of the previous century. The guides are so nice, because we didn't have a lot of them, one of them offered us to show us around real quick for free! Had a great time there :)
  • This place is awesome, not just for the sheer number of vintage cars on display, but also for the tour guide who makes the 1-1.5 hrs engaging. Tip- the place is obscure and you may think it is closed. In fact, the entrance is to the building's right side from the parking lot.
  • It's great! Take the guided tour. Our guide was fantastic.
  • Interesting museum for any car or history lover. Mostly focuses on the Model T. I would suggest going on the guided tour instead of roaming around yourself.

Where to stay in Detroit

Detroit offers accommodations to suit every type of traveler, and you don't even have to stay in the central business district to take advantage of the finest hotels. Downtown lodging gives you easy access to most of the city's major attractions, but choosing a more affordable room in Detroit's outlying neighborhoods can also be rewarding. To explore the city's famously diverse neighborhoods, consider staying at a budget-friendly guesthouse on the southwestern side of the city.
