Get ready for a full day of fun! Thomas the Tank Engine™ is pulling into The Henry Ford for two weekends of big dreams and even BIGGER smiles. Rumble down the track aboard Thomas, and meet Sir Topham Hatt™ on a fun-filled springtime adventure in Greenfield Village. Experience wide-eyed, memory-making moments around every corner — magic shows, storytelling, play areas, lawn games, arts and crafts, live music and more.

Since Thomas the Tank Engine left the depot more than 60 years ago, Thomas & Friends™ have chugged their way into the hearts of preschoolers and grownups worldwide. Based on “The Railway Series” of classic stories, Thomas & Friends is a rite of passage that inspires childlike imagination while teaching lessons of friendship, exploration and cooperation.

Admission to Day Out With Thomas includes a timed ticket to ride on Thomas the Tank Engine and themed programming for your littlest engineer — plus, all-day access to Greenfield Village for over 80 acres of inspiration.
