Greenfield Village, The Henry Ford

9:30 AM – 5:00 PM


Thomas train rides are timed, and begin every half hour- First ride begins at 9:30 AM,

Last ride is at 4:30 PM.  The ride goes around the perimeter of Greenfield Village and lasts about 20 minutes

Time slots and days do sell out, so get your tickets in advance!

  • Remember:  Thomas boards inside Greenfield Village – tickets for both a Thomas timed ride and Village admission are sold, and must be purchased, together.  Members of The Henry Ford are admitted to Greenfield Village free of charge but must still purchase timed Thomas tickets to ride.
  • Other Thomas activities are available for all who visit Greenfield Village.  You do not need to purchase Thomas train ride tickets to visit the related Thomas activities.
  • Thomas boards and leaves from Smiths Creek Station every half hour.  This station is toward the back of the Village and is about a 20 minute walk from the parking area.  We recommend that you arrive at the event at least 30 minutes before your timed ride.
  • Network with other families and visit with personnel from both AAoM and THF.  Get tips on safety and other resources.
  •  Meet Anthony Ianni, AAoM Safety and Anti-Bullying presenter—and former MSU basketball player. Anthony is an individual with autism.
