Going into this "museum" was like going back in time. More so, because there were first car ever made, and other "artifacts" like round model house, and limousine. All in the tip top conditions. I was surprised it wasn't as popular with crowds. Maybe it has something to do with the location. It was interesting trip to the past. Visited... More

I don't usually review attractions in my own backyard (why I don't know), but this place was so disappointing I felt compelled to warn others about it. As other reviewers have observed, displays consist of numerous sign boards requiring a lot of reading. But vehicles are few; all the best ones (Kennedy's limo, the Rosa Parks bus, etc.) are down...

I was pretty disappointed in this place. I was expecting a lot more cars and not so much reading per se in an "automotive hall of fame." Felt kind of let down and that I got my hopes up for nothing.

Nice addition to the 'Henry Ford Complex' but shouldn't be a separate charge. A lot of information and a few displays. Building architecture is interesting. More of a walk thru library than a museum. Great for an autophile but not for tag-a-long children.

Incredible array of historic American artifacts - some iconic, others more obscure. Great way to show the family a small part of our history. Excellent and fun learning opportunity. Good for all ages. Nice food area. Food was good.

Blast to the past, fun to see the autos, good indoor event for the entire day. Easy to get around and see the displays.

This is not a museum of artifacts and displays like The Henry Ford across the parking lot. We almost didn't go in when we were told that but I am glad we did. My son is more about the visual, admiring displays than about the "boring" reading, aren't all teenagers? But he was actually lagging behind me looking and reading... More

It is a decent place for the historical value, Just not much to see. Good displays. Just as little expensive.

Is ok. Nothing amazing. And a little pricy at 10 bucks for something that small. But it was ok. Had a decent amount for information to read. Not alot cars.

At $10 a adult I had expectations likely beyond what I received they were up front before we paid there were very few cars included and to be fair there were more than expected. We had to enter via the Toilet corridor as there was a conference on and we were the only people there. It has a lot of... More
