Love Greenfield Village, Hate The Price!.
Our family really loves to go to the village. We had a family membership that was a gift from grandma and we went often and had a blast. Our kids are 14, 11, and 7. When I went to renew the membership I almost fainted at the price!!! We could not afford the renewal.
I can't believe how much it costs just to get in!!! Then when you're in there you have to pay an extra $10 to go on the attractions or else you have to listen to little ones' dissapointment the whole day!!!
Too bad it's way out of our price range. Our family will likley never be back:( Such a shame as we always loved to go.
The history of technology comes to life in this village created by Henry Ford.. In Short Greenfield Village is populated with the real-life homes, workshops and buildings where some of the country's greatest contributions to mankind unfolded. Don't miss Thomas Edison's Menlo Park, N.J., laboratory. Also see the original house where Noah Webster wrote his dictionary and the bicycle shop where the Wright brothers built their first airplane. The grounds host special weekend exhibits and festivities, including horse-drawn carriage rides in summer and sleigh rides in winter.
TOOT TOOT all aboard the Village express.
There are many things to do here, a littl expensive but the yearly passes are well worth it. Other than the village there is the Henry Ford Museum with HUGE trains and many interesting things for kids and adults to do.
In the village you will find historic homes and many demonstrations, some of which you can do yourself and make a post card for example. during the summer they have many activities for the family and a re-enactment of a war (can't remember which) take a horse drawn carriage ride or eat some frozen custard, ride the train around and get a tour, ride the steam boat, and visit the train house. they repair old trains abck to working condition. bring a stroller and snacks and drinks.
