Between Saturday’s much-anticipated opening day at Greenfield Village and events surrounding the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s voyage – there’s a lot to get excited about at The Henry Ford.
Greenfield Village opens Saturday
After a winter of preparation, it’s time again to open the gates and welcome visitors back to Greenfield Village. The village opens at 9:30 a.m., Saturday, April 14.
Whether it’s learning about springtime farming activities, hopping on multiple modes of historic transportation, strolling through the village streets, exploring the workspaces and homes and of some of America’s greatest innovators, or grabbing a bite to eat – a trip to the village is a walk through time gone by.
