Holidays in Henry Ford Museum
November 28, 2014 - January 4, 2015
Create Memories That Will Last Across Generations
Imagine a giant Christmas tree adorned with hundreds of precious ornaments, the perfect Santa and winter wonderland-bound toy trains. Experience these unforgettable moments for real during Holidays in Henry Ford Museum — and create memories that will last across generations.

Build your own family traditions with a holiday visit to Henry Ford Museum. Reminders of the festive season are everywhere you look. Marvel at our towering Christmas tree or the remarkable Glancy trains as they run through a model of mid-20th-century Detroit. And then, of course, there’s Santa himself. All of the year-round treasures are here as well: the Rosa Parks Bus, the always-entertaining Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, the massive train display and our newest exhibit, Driving America. Holidays in Henry Ford Museum are like nothing else on earth.

Helpful Tips When Visiting Santa
  • Santa is here 10 am-4 pm Monday-Friday, 9:30 am-5 pm Saturday and Sunday.

  • Weekday afternoons generally are the best times to visits Santa, when he may have more time to spend with each child.

  • Santa takes a break to feed his reindeer each afternoon. The time varies because Santa sees everyone in line before he leaves, so the line closes for a time. After his departure, the line reopens for guests wishing to wait for his return. Please check with Santa’s Greeter to confirm his return time.

  • Saturday and Sunday afternoons are our busiest times, so plan ahead. On these busy weekends, we often need to close the line as early as 3 pm to accommodate the long line of guests by 5 pm when the museum closes.
