Must-See Events
Tinker. Hack. Invent. Saturdays
Every Saturday, every month (10am - 2pm)
It’s a weekly celebration of American ingenuity. We call it Tinker. Hack. Invent. and it takes place every Saturday. Join our Tinker Task Force and have a blast trying your hand at all sorts of things. Then, on the last Saturday of every month, we open our doors to crafters, basement scientists, hobbyists, inventive foodies, tinkerers — the kind of folks you’ll find at our annual Maker Faire — and ask them to share their expertise and enthusiasm with museum visitors. Americans are famous for their ingenuity and resourcefulness, for their eagerness to improve and explore new ideas. This is your chance to learn firsthand how that spirit is alive and well today. Come explore your own ingenuity. Try your hand at something new, something different. The activities change month to month. Hands-on. How-to, DIY, science and more! The only limitation is your imagination. And it’s free* with museum admission or membership.

*Some supply fees may apply.

Mother's Day Brunch
May 11, 2014
A Mother’s Day to remember. Brunch in Michigan’s most beautiful ballroom is elegant, delicious and affordable.

It’s Mother’s Day. Time to splurge on mom. Or your grandmother or aunt or any other maternal person who has worked hard to make your life easier. And there is no more memorable way to say thank you than the extraordinary Mother’s Day Brunch in Michigan’s most beautiful ballroom — Henry Ford's private ballroom in Lovett Hall. The meal? Mouthwatering. And the setting? One-of-a-kind. Crystal chandeliers, vaulted ceilings, a terrazzo lobby and a grand staircase. Magnificent! Just what mom deserves.

Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power
May 17 - August 17, 2014
Like to rock? Women Who Rock is an unprecedented chance to revisit the musicians who helped shape the soundtrack of your life — innovators like Madonna and Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin and Tina Turner and dozens of others.

Explore the musical paraphernalia that surrounded your favorite music greats — their music sheets, handwritten notes, session cards, concert posters, photographs and even their instruments. Add your own musical reflections to the mix. Step into a sound booth, hit “record” and leave behind your own thoughts and reflections for posterity.

History for your ears. At Henry Ford Museum®.

This exhibit is presented by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
Civil War Remembrance
May 24-26, 2014 (Open Saturday 'til 9pm)
Feel the Civil War come alive all around you as bustling camps, cavalry and period music enliven an entire weekend filled with reenacted events.

Before we immerse ourselves in summer pleasures, we stop to recall the 3 million people who fought in America’s Civil War and the estimated 750,000 people who died — the equivalent of 7.5 million dead today.

This year marks the sesquicentennial of 1864, the turning point and final full year of the war. 1864 witnessed Union Gen. Ulysses S. Grant’s Overland Campaign against Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, the fall of Atlanta and Gen. William Sherman’s subsequent March to the Sea, and the Richmond-Petersburg Campaign, a series of battles that led to Lee's surrender.

This weekend in Greenfield Village, hundreds of Union and Confederate reenactors, civilians, musicians and historic presenters — all in period clothing — converge, eager to share their knowledge with you. There are dozens of opportunities to learn more about this pivotal time in American history: exhibits, presentations, battle tactics demonstration, hands-on activities and insights from historians.

Please join us in honoring the sacrifices and achievements of all those who bravely fought and continue to fight in defense of our great nation. The Henry Ford will participate in a national moment of silence at 3 pm Monday as signaled by the Armington & Sims shop whistle.
