Experience the Birthplace of the Model T


This is a tour like no other

Picture yourself in what was once America’s premier automotive assembly plant. Sunlight angles through the plant windows, warming the old wood floors and glinting off the brass trim of over 40 early Fords and other Detroit automobiles.

This is where Ford Motor Company set the world’s record for auto assembly in 1907—six years before Ford introduced the moving assembly line at Highland Park. The long view down the center of the plant offers stunning photo opportunities. Gazing down that same perspective in 1904, a Ford employee wondered how they would ever fill the new factory.

Experience Henry Ford’s office as it was in 1908, just before he introduced the Model T. See the Experimental Room where the Model T was developed, and learn how Ford’s small team of hand-picked talent created the car that changed the world. Shop for automotive books, crafts, and unique gifts.

You can just drop in, or arrange a private tour.
