Tinker. Hack. Invent. Saturdays
Every Saturday, every month (10am - 3pm)
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.
Holidays in Henry Ford Museum
November 28, 2014 - January 4, 2015
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.
