what to bring, what to wear
Greenfield Village is spread over dozens of acres-- comfortable clothing and comfortable shoes are a must. A large portion of activities are held outdoors, rain, snow or shine. Dressing for the weather is a must. Bring umbrellas/rain gear/snow gear and prepare for a wide range of temperatures.

Wheelchairs are rented on a first come, first served basis-- plan to arrive early if you need to rent them. You are welcome to bring your own wheelchair or scooter, however, upright scooters (Segways) are not allowed on premises. We regret that wagons, strollers and electric scooters will NOT be available to rent on the evenings of the Holiday Nights programs- please plan accordingly. You are welcome to bring your own stroller or children’s wagon, however, recreational scooters, bicycles or in-line/in-sole skates are not allowed inside the Village gates.

Bring a camera; photography is allowed in all areas of the Village.
