If you remember this from your childhood visits, you owe it to yourself and your friends to visit again when you have someone you want to impress. So much has been upgraded lately in both the village and the museum.

Hello! We recommend at least 2-3 hours for Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, and at least 4 hours for Greenfield Village. You can easily spend an entire day at each, however. Hope this helps
