Can you imagine walking into your workplace inspired every day? At The Henry Ford, you will be surrounded by icons of the world’s greatest achievements and working side by side with passionate people driven by one purpose: to ignite a spark in the minds of the next generation of thinkers, makers and innovators that will change our world.

You will be part of a nonprofit organization that is a national treasure, providing inspiration to 1.8 million guests each year at Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, Greenfield Village, Ford Rouge Factory Tour and the Benson Ford Research Center. When you join our team and stand in Edison’s Laboratory or sit on the Rosa Parks Bus and see people from every corner of the world next to you in wonderment, you will feel an overwhelming sense of pride and purpose knowing you are a part of what The New York Times named “one of the world’s coolest museums.”

If you are curious, authentic and passionate, then we are the workplace for you. At The Henry Ford, staff enjoy a number of unique benefits, including:

  • Free and reduced admissions to our venues and popular special events for you, your family and friends
  • Substantial discounts on purchases in our restaurants and retail stores
  • Educational and entertaining events throughout the year exclusively for staff

The most valued benefit of the staff is the opportunity to work in a one-of-a-kind workplace atmosphere where you are inspired by authentic stories of American innovation, ingenuity and resourcefulness.

We want you to be part of this legacy and take it forward.
