The Bacon House is a historic home in Wyandotte, MI. Tours of the home may or may not be available. The library part is in the back, and it's full service - books, movies, computer center. This is convenient - only a half mile from my house! One feature is a table of books that are free, and you can also drop off books you have already read. They also have a room with books for sale, at extremely reasonable prices (used library books are often like brand new!

The Henry Ford

Trace the history of the auto and our fascination with it along with other American inventions through the staggering collection of Henry Fords estate, which includes such memorabilia as the chair Abraham Lincoln sat in when he was assassinated and the limo in which John F. Kennedy was shot.

Excellent experience! Our "guide" was perfect - good explanations, nudges in the right direction if we needed but only given if we asked, and always just the right clue to get us back on track without giving it away. Highly recommended! Can't wait to try another room here!

Greenfield Village

Reviewed By Dmarkwind - Kansas City, Missouri

Between his greed, the poor working conditions in his factories, and his brutal early union busting efforts, Henry Ford really wasn’t the nicest guy ever. But he showed a lot of foresight in bringing together this collection of buildings and artifacts to preserve history and make them available for public viewing. I do appreciate being able to see the Wright Brothers’ bicycle shop, Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park Laboratory, and the many other historic buildings assembled here from their various original locales. And I appreciate that Ford crossed racial barriers to work with George Washington Carver.

There’s a lot to read and learn here. The village employs an army of folks in period costumes. Between wandering around on our own, we took in a musical program, and saw an interpreter portraying Edison.

We’ve been to several other living history villages including Colonial Williamsburg, The Fortress of Louisbourg in Nova Scotia, Canada, and Heritage Park Historical Village near Calgary, but this location holds a special place because of the five or so times I’ve been to the Detroit area, I’ve visited this place nearly every time, going back to when I was very young.

The last time we were here, we paid for and enjoyed a ride in a Model T, which was a 30-minute tour that provided an overview of the place. I was a little disappointed to find the Model T ride is now just a seven-minute circuit, not a tour, and you have to line up in a cue for your turn. It was still fun, but not what I expected. Seems like there’s been other changes since we were last here more than 10 years ago, including more extensive development of the park’s roads, the addition of more food stands, and development of a whole arts and crafts area showcasing various crafts.

Trapped DownRiver

A theme-based cooperative experience where a group of people are locked in a room and have one hour to use their surroundings and wit to solve a series of puzzles and games to gain their freedom. While staying away from the creatures that lurk in the room.

Reviewed By Dawn P

I've gone through both escape rooms and both were incredibly fun and exciting! The first time through no one in our group had done an escape room before. Wendy was helpful and professional the entire time. She quietly nudged us along the way if we seemed completely lost. The second time we went in the new Asylum room. Wendy recognized us and knew we didn't need as many hints this time. We knew to check EVERYWHERE and to use our brains a little more. The puzzles and characters keeps you on your toes the entire hour you're in there. It never slows down. I'd definitely recommend Trapped Downriver.
