About Us

The Henry Ford, in Dearborn, Michigan, is the world’s premiere history destination that celebrates 300 years of American history and innovation.

Our mission is to provide unique educational experiences based on America’s traditions of ingenuity, resourcefulness and innovation. Our purpose is to inspire people to learn from these traditions and shape a better future. The Henry Ford holds 26 million authentic artifacts and documents including Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park laboratory, the bus on which Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, the Wright Brothers’ home and cycle shop, and Buckminster Fuller’s Dymaxion House.

Five distinct attractions at The Henry Ford captivate and inspire more than 1.5 million visitors annually: Henry Ford Museum, Greenfield Village, The Ford Rouge Factory Tour, The Benson Ford Research Center and The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre.
