I went on the tour a couple of days ago, sadly the trucks weren't being built that day, they said there was a shortage of frame shipment due to the weather. The tour was still very interesting, my friends and I rode on a bus from the museum to the Rouge plant. watched some history and development shows in 2 small theaters, then went up on an upper floor look out over the plant and then walked around where the trucks were being built. You don't get to see every part of them being built, it starts watching cabs getting fitted with interior. Since no assembly was taking place, we just seen the trucks in different stages, and then some finished trucks getting final inspection by people and machines.
I enjoyed the tour and thought it was well worth seeing.

I can't say if any time is better, I have been to the museum twice and the tour of the plant once. Both times I was in Detroit for the Autorama.
During school months there are a lot of field trips to the museum. I didn't mind the kids in general, but there were a few times they were a bit loud.

Thanks for replying!

I guess I'll just avoid visiting it during school months. Thanks again!

My wife and I did the tour when we were in town for the Detroit auto show. It was realy impressive to see the trucks being put together. I would reccomend the tour and the museum to anyone.
