See the decor, visit Santa and watch the model trains chug by Nov. 26, 2010-Jan. 9, 2011
This Christmas, celebrate the magic of the holidays in Henry Ford Museum, Nov. 26 through January 2011. This event has become a visitor favorite with its spectacular decorations, 25-foot Christmas tree, hands-on activities and of course everyone’s favorite—Santa Claus.
Holidays in Henry Ford Museum is free with membership or admission to the museum; $15 adults, $14 senior (62 and up) and $11 youth (5-12). Children four and under are free. For more information, call (313) 982-6001 or visit www.thehenryford.org.
New this year, visitors can experience “Depot Town” near the Mighty Allegheny. This area of the museum puts the museum's train collection in the spotlight during the holidays and provides the perfect location for storytelling and some hands-on activities. Back by popular demand, the Lionel model trains will whiz and weave around their tracks in an intricate miniature display, while the Michigan LEGO Users Group also return with a brand new train layout. A new Learn to Build Workshop gives kids five years of age and older, the opportunity to build a train locomotive out of LEGOs, only on Saturdays. For times, visit www.thehenryford.org.
The museum's giant 25-foot Christmas tree and decorations will embody the warm wishes that characterize the season, while highlighting the innovative spirit The Henry Ford celebrates year round. This tree creates the perfect backdrop for your family’s holiday photo.
Lastly, follow the sound of Ho, Ho, Ho’s to the Silver and Pewter aisle where Santa Clause will be patiently waiting to hear everyone’s Christmas wishes. Don’t forget to capture the moment with a photo!
