Member Preview Day

at Greenfield Village

Special Event at Greenfield Village®

  • Canceled for 2020: April 17, 2020

Exclusive Members-Only Benefit

COVID-19 Update:
As we continue to respond to the coronavirus outbreak, The Henry Ford is resetting current program plans and making necessary operational changes. As part of this reset, we will not host Member Preview Day in Greenfield Village on April 17, 2020.

We are so grateful for our community of members during this period and always, and we thank you for your critical support as we continue to care for the collections, buildings, historic vehicles, farm animals and staff through this period. Take care of yourselves and your families, and please continue to connect with us and each other digitally and via social media. Together we can continue to preserve the past and fuel the future. #WeAreInnovationNation

Join us for the one day of the year when we open the village just for our members and guests covered by their membership.

Kick up your heels to 20th-century ragtime music played live in the plaza before the gates officially open. Venture into the village for new programming and seasonal favorites, including a ceremonial send-off for the first train ride of the year.

All day long, be among the first of the season to crank up Edison’s phonograph, play pilot with the Wright brothers and ride in a real Model T — all before Greenfield Village opens to the public.

Can You Dig It?
Firestone Lane | 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Dig into the 1930s to discover a century of cultivation, from soil preparation and seeds to tools and techniques, with our enterprising early-season gardeners.
