You know spring has arrived when Greenfield Village opens for the year. The historic village opens to the public on Saturday, April 17th and members can reserve tickets to get early access on Friday, April 16th.
Greenfield Village is my happy place. I love taking a trip through time to explore the working farm, Liberty Craftworks, Main Street and the historic homes. The gardens are a beautiful oasis and the train is fun for everyone. Let the kids run around, get sandy and a little wet in the summer at the playground. You can’t leave without a cone of custard because it’s ‘tradition’.
The Greenfield Village will only be open Thursdays through Sundays with timed tickets for entry between 9:30am and 5:00pm. Purchase tickets online, admission for children ages 5 to 11 is $21 and adults are $28. We highly recommend getting a membership to The Henry Ford, you can use it for both the Museum and Village and a trip to each in a year pays for itself.
What You Can See/Do
Your favorite Village experiences will be open this year – the train, carousel and Village Playground. The farm animals will be out, crafts workers creating in Liberty Square and treats available available at the Frozen Custard Hut. Here’s a map of the Village to show you which experiences are staffed and which are open for self-guided tours.
To manage capacity, ticket reservations are required and capacity is limited. For everyone’s health and wellness, all visitors ages 5 and up must wear face masks to and abide by social distancing guidelines, keeping at least 6 feet away from staff and other guests/parties. There are also new cleaning policies and increased number of sanitary stations.
Make the most of your visit and head inside to The Henry Ford Museum to check out the NEW Drive To Win Exhibit (it’s really cool!).
