Our Visit to Holidays in Henry Ford Museum

Holidays in Henry Ford Museum
November 28, 2014 - January 4, 2015

Build your own family traditions with a holiday visit to Henry Ford Museum. Reminders of the festive season are everywhere you look. Marvel at our towering Christmas tree or the remarkable Glancy trains as they run through a model of mid-20th-century Detroit. And then, of course, there’s Santa himself. All of the year-round treasures are here as well: the Rosa Parks Bus, the always-entertaining Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, the massive train display and our newest exhibit, Driving America. Holidays in Henry Ford Museum are like nothing else on earth.

My family and I were so excited to go to Holidays in Henry Ford! The museum was decorated for Christmas and we were happily surprised to find that 3 of the Mold A Rama machines had holiday themed molds in them! We decided to get the Polar Express and Santa, and I really regret not getting the cute Christmas tree too...

There are so many must-sees in The Henry Ford this holiday season but one of the coolest and most unique to me was the Lego model of mid-20th-century Detroit! I posted some pictures of it below but pictures still don't do it justice. I love Detroit a lot so it was so great to see buildings like the Guardian Building made completely out of Legos and 8 feet tall!

I'm going to warn you now, this post is going to be filled with tons of amazing pictures. Usually I just pick my favorites for the posts but there were too many good ones to just leave out!

P.S. Hurry in if you want to the Gridiron Glory: The Best of the Pro Football Hall of Fame because its only open til January 4, 2015! 

We didn't meet Santa this time (although there was no line when we went!) because Z gets really shy and nervous around Santa although she loves talking about him and seeing him on TV.  Z would've been happy spending hours looking at the model trains and playing with the Duplo Blocks that were set up for play. I loved that we were able to go inside a train car where a nice lady was reading The Polar Express to all of the kids. Of course Z wouldnt stand still long enough to listen to the story but she really enjoyed walking through the train and looking out the windows.  

If you're around the Metro Detroit area this season, take the family to The Henry Ford Museum and I promise you wont regret it! To learn more or order your tickets visit www.thehenryford.org/museum


  1. I love taking the family and kids to the Henry Ford Museum, but I have never been there for the holidays, looks spectacular. Going to have to check it out some time.

  2. This looks like an awesome place to go. My kids and grandkids would love it here!

  3. Wow, absolutely amazing, thank you for sharing! I love the train set. I have always wanted to do a giant train station in my house. It would be so much fun.

  4. What a very nice museum to go to over the Holidays. I would love to go here with the family and look at all the history of this museum! The pictures are amazing.
