COVID-19 Updates

This page will be updated regularly.

As the spread of novel coronavirus continues to impact our world, our nation and now our state, we, as an organization, have been evaluating and exploring all options regarding our venues and operations.

In alignment with the current statewide closures of schools, attractions, and large public gatherings; all public venues of The Henry Ford will remain closed through Sunday, May 31, 2020. This includes the closing of Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, Greenfield Village, the Ford Rouge Factory Tour, the Giant Screen Experience and the Benson Ford Research Center. In addition, all private catered events are canceled during this time.   

We encourage all of our guests to explore the institution’s venues, programs and collections by visiting during this public closure.


We greatly appreciate everyone's flexibility and patience as we navigate this unprecedented circumstance together and we thank you for your continued support of The Henry Ford.
