The Henry Ford, which closed March 12 in response to the COVID-19 crisis, will begin a multi-phased reopening starting with a Members Preview weekend July 2-5. On July 9, it will throw its doors open to the public at large.

The Henry Ford

In this first phase, the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village will be open just Thursdays-Sundays, 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Visitors will need to make a reservation for a specific time to gain admittance. You can begin reserving tickets starting June 22 by visiting thehenryford.org.

To keep visitors safe, hands-on activities will be limited throughout the Dearborn institution, and visitors and staff will be instructed to maintain 6-foot social distancing. Visitors aged 3 and up will have to wear a mask, but those can be removed once inside if visitors keep more than 6 feet away from one another. 

To further guarantee visitor safety, all staff will undergo a health screening on arrival for each shift. In addition, extra cleaning staff will be on hand disinfecting the premises, and hand-sanitizer stations will be available throughout.
