Tinker. Hack. Invent. Saturdays
Every Saturday, every month (10am - 2pm)
It’s a weekly celebration of American ingenuity. We call it Tinker. Hack. Invent. and it takes place every Saturday. Join our Tinker Task Force and have a blast trying your hand at all sorts of things. Then, on the last Saturday of every month, we open our doors to crafters, basement scientists, hobbyists, inventive foodies, tinkerers — the kind of folks you’ll find at our annual Maker Faire — and ask them to share their expertise and enthusiasm with museum visitors. Americans are famous for their ingenuity and resourcefulness, for their eagerness to improve and explore new ideas. This is your chance to learn firsthand how that spirit is alive and well today. Come explore your own ingenuity. Try your hand at something new, something different. The activities change month to month. Hands-on. How-to, DIY, science and more! The only limitation is your imagination. And it’s free* with museum admission or membership.

*Some supply fees may apply.
Macy's 2nd Mondays
Second Monday of each Month (10am – noon)
Introduce your preschool children to the wonders of The Henry Ford — all before nap time. Preschoolers rule during Macy’s 2nd Mondays at The Henry Ford. Storytelling, live entertainment and dozens of hands-on activities related to some of our most memorable artifacts — trains, dollhouses, historic games, even a ride on our amazing Herschell-Spillman carousel. There are seasonal activities, too: Santa in December, Valentine’s Day take-home artwork in February and 19th-century base ball in July (base ball was spelled as two words into the early 1900s). And it’s all free! Give your children’s minds the adventure of their young lives.
