Whether you want to enjoy the great indoors or the great outdoors, there are all kinds of good things going on at The Henry Ford.
The engaging Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition is in Henry Ford Museum through Sept. 30. Tickets for timed entries are available – and it’s always a good plan ahead and purchase them in advance.
James Cameron’s Titanic: An IMAX 3-D Experience and the documentary Titanica are showing Saturday and Sunday at the The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre. Here’s more info on showtimes and tickets for both films.
If its outdoor activities you’re after, Greenfield Village has more than its share.
Saturday is National Get Outdoors Day, and there some special activities planned. The Percheron horses of the village take center stage as visitors will have the opportunity to learn how to drive them and speak with the caretakers of the 16 horses to which the village is home. Signed copies of the new book, The Horses of Greenfield Village, will be a sold outside the William Ford Barn, and visitors will have the opportunity to meet our own 1905 U.S. Ranger, Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl. There’s also a 2 p.m. nature hike at Oxbow Island, games on the green and other hands-on activities, giveaways and some environmental displays in the Pavilion.
Historic base ball makes its home season debut back at Walnut Grove as our own teams – the Lah-De-Dahs and National BBC – take to the field. The Lah-De-Dahs play the Wyandotte Stars at 1:30 Saturday, then they face off against rival home team the Nationals at the same time Sunday. Learn more about the game and the season schedule on the Greenfield Village historic base ball site.
