The Henry Ford Announces New Experiences and Exhibitions for 2021

(Dearborn, Mich. – Feb. 1, 2021) – This new year is bringing artistry, adrenaline, imagination, and inspiration to The Henry Ford in 2021. New limited-engagement exhibits, a permanent exhibition, brand new experiences and familiar favorites are sure to have something for everyone across the cultural institution’s venues.

Following the successful run of Marvel: Universe of Superheroes which closes on January 31,  Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation’s GM Gallery will welcome  the limited-engagement exhibitions Louis Comfort Tiffany: Treasures from the Driehaus Collection, opening March 6 - April 25 and The Jim Henson Exhibition: Imagination Unlimited, opening June 5 - September 6.

Coming early spring 2021 is the highly-anticipated opening of The Henry Ford’s newest permanent exhibition in Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, Driven to Win: Racing in America presented by General Motors. This state-of-the art, highly interactive permanent exhibit immerses members and guests in the excitement, adrenaline-pumping, thrilling history of auto racing in America. Spread across 24,000 square feet, Driven to Win features 28 vehicles, roughly 225 artifacts, and multiple interactive experiences including six driver simulators that put visitors behind the wheel on world-famous tracks throughout the world. 

Greenfield Village once again will open for the 2021 season on April 16th for members and April 17th to the public. The venue will be opened Thursday through Sundays 9:30 am to 5:00 pm until June. Due to time constraints and the safety of all those who help in creating large-scale events, The Henry Ford has made the difficult decision to cancel some of its signature programming for the 2021 season including A Day Out With Thomas, Civil War Remembrance and Maker Faire Detroit.

For those looking to access The Henry Ford from home, the institution’s social channels, blog and website will continue to provide captivating content throughout the year, including THF Conversations. Held on Zoom, the virtual speaker series features leaders in their field as they discuss the topic and challenges facing us today.

For a limited time, new and renewing members can enjoy 15 months of membership benefits for the price of 12 months using the code MEM15FOR12 from February 1 to March 5, 2021. Information regarding tickets for the upcoming exhibits and experiences will be announced soon.
