Here’s what’s going on this month at The Henry Ford:
Driving America – now open at Henry Ford Museum! The wait is over – and now you can explore the world’s premier automotive exhibition for yourself! Take a trip through 80,000 square feet of automotive history, and a look at where we’re headed next. And don’t forget to tell us the story of your first car!
- Celebrate Black History!: Throughout the month of February, we have a wide range of performances and activities available at Henry Ford Museum to explore Black History in America.
- The last day to see Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol on Michigan’s largest screen – including that incredible Burj Khalifa climbing scene! – is Thursday, February 9.
- The Henry Ford Learning Series: American Democracy and Civil Rights, February 10: Our monthly Learning Series lectures continue, this time focusing on leadership in American democracy. Guests are invited to attend the morning lecture featuring Donna Braden, our own curator of public life and lead experience developer, along with Kidada Williams, assistant professor of African American History at Wayne State University. This morning session is free and open to the public.
- Macy’s 2nd Mondays, February 13: Join us from 10 a.m.-noon for this fun morning out with your little ones! This month’s theme is “Driving America,” and as usual, there will be lots of hands-on activities and fun for them. Don’t forget – admission to Henry Ford Museum is always FREE for children under five!
- Target Family Days, February 20 (Presidents Day!): Thanks to our friends at Target, you can enjoy free admission to Henry Ford Museum on this day – along with make-and-take activities, live musical performances and even a presidential-themed scavenger hunt through the museum. It’s also another great opportunity to experience our Celebrate Black History! activities.
- Open house for our Summer Discovery Camps, February 22: Did you know that we offer a summer day camp program for kids? It’s true! If you have a youngster in grades 2-9, you’ll want to stop by to learn more about this history-based, week-long program. Past campers have created old-fashioned toys, hiked through the restored Rouge River Oxbow area of Greenfield Village, built robots – and even served as an apprentice in a historic craft!
Hope you can join us for a fantastic February!
