On Your Field Trip

Shop, Dine, and Ride


A large selection of educational toys, books, souvenirs and resources is available in the Museum, Village and Ford Rouge Factory Tour stores. Teachers and students may wish to bring along a little extra spending money. If you run out of time, shopping is at our Online Store.


Bring Your Own Lunch

School and youth groups are invited to bring their own lunches. Beverage vending machines are provided for your convenience at the Museum and Ford Rouge Factory Tour. Glass containers are not permitted in our venues. No food, drinks or smoking are permitted in the Museum exhibit areas, Village historic buildings, on rides, or outside designated areas at Ford Rouge Factory Tour.

Student Dining Room

Reserve a space for your group to eat in our Student Dining Room located across from the Michigan Café in Henry Ford Museum or on the Mezzanine at the Ford Rouge Factory Tour. This space is open to groups that are bringing their own lunches. But please note that this requires advance reservations through the Call Center. Space is limited.

Dining in the Museum and Village

At The Henry Ford, we have 11 dining venues featuring locally grown products to satisfy every taste and every appetite. Students will love a hot dog from our American Dog House or rock candy from Sir John Bennett Sweet Shop. From sweets and snacks to beverages and lunch, we've got a dining option you will love. View information on specific dining options.
