Weather-wise, there’s a common phrase for March: “In like a lion, out like a lamb.”
Well, this month at The Henry Ford, we’re going in the opposite direction…and going out with a Titanic-sized finish.
We hope you’ll join us for all the excitement!
Learning Series – Evolution of Science and Technology, March 2: Catch the morning session (it’s free and open to the public) as Dr. Charles Dershimer explores how objects from everyday life demonstrate how people think about environmental issues, alter technology to suit their needs, and use technology to solve environmental problems.

And then – the big one…
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, opening March 31: One hundred years ago, the Titanic sank in the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean. During this significant anniversary, you’ll be able to tour this premier exhibition chronicling the life of the ship and its passengers through more than 300 artifacts, extensive re-creations of the ship’s rooms and even a full-size replica of the Grand Staircase.
