The Henry Ford complex is a top tourist destination for Michigan
So what’s the Henry Ford all about?
The Henry Ford complex, located in Dearborn, Mich., is one of our state’s most beloved tourist attractions – and for plenty of good reasons.
The complex is home to FIVE destinations in one, including: Henry Ford Museum, Greenfield Village, the Ford Rouge Factory Tour, the Benson Ford Research Center and The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre for the latest feature-length and documentary-style films.
Henry Ford Museum showcases the American ideas and innovations, technological and social, which have fired our imaginations and changed our lives. Here, visitors explore the first 40 years of flight in the Heroes of Sky exhibit and walk past awe-inspiring vehicles in Driving America including Henry Ford’s first automobile, the Quadricycle. With Liberty and Justice For All showcases American freedom and features an amazing array of artifacts representing powerful change agents such as the bus on which Rosa Parks took a stand for Civil Rights, the camp bed George Washington used during his tour of Revolutionary War sites and the chair in which Abraham Lincoln was sitting the night he was shot.
Additionally, a summer favorite is Greenfield Village, where visitors can experience more than 300 years of American history through 83 authentic, historic structures, four living history farms, and nationally-renowned artists creating one-of-a-kind 19th- and 20th-century pieces in pottery, tin and glass. Filled with amazing authentic structures such as the Wright brothers’ cycle shop, Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park Laboratories and George Washington Carver’s memorial cabin.
Check out the month-by-month calendar for the latest events. Upcoming events include the Ragtime Street Fair, Old Car Festival, the Salute to America concert with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and fireworks display, and historic baseball games, following rules from 1867.
