This year we will not be offering free admission to the Ford Rouge Factory Tour during the educator open house because the Dearborn Truck Plant is in the midst of the 2015 F-150 Launch. Ford Rouge Factory Tour staff will be present at the open house to share exciting information on how the Factory Tour is changing with new theater experiences that will tell the story of America’s manufacturing and innovation.
