Visit one of the Detroit area’s oldest and largest cultural institutions with a tour of archival, library and museum storage at The Henry Ford in nearby Dearborn! Dedicated in 1929, and celebrating its 90th anniversary during 2019, The Henry Ford is home to more than a million 3D artifacts and over 50,000 linear feet of archival and library materials that together help tell stories America’s traditions of ingenuity, resourcefulness and innovation. The first half of the tour will feature the archival and library storage areas located in the Benson Ford Research Center and highlight unique items from those holdings including the historic business records of the Ford Motor Company, an extensive Trade Catalog collection, and automotive and industrial design materials. In the second half of the tour, the group will visit the recently opened Main Storage Building, which is quickly becoming the new home for The Henry Ford’s large collection of automobiles, as well as providing processing and storage spaces for 2D and 3D objects and collections. Please note: considerable walking will be required on the tour. Transportation will be provided, leaving from and returning to the conference hotel.
