Landscape Tours

Tour the grounds with us and explore the beauty and history of our National Historic Landmark designated site, designed by the renowned landscape architect, Jens Jensen.

This will be a one-hour outdoor walking tour. Wear good walking shoes, as we will cover over a mile of walking on uneven ground. All participants must follow social distancing guidelines and wear a mask for the duration of the tour.

Cost: $10 for adults, $5 for children, Ford House members are FREE.


In general, there are no refunds or exchanges. If the tour is canceled for inclement weather, tickets may be exchanged or refunded.

Our outdoor tours cover uneven ground, pebble paths, and may go through the rose garden, which has a few stairs. They also cross the lawn. 
If you have accessibility needs or concerns, our tour staff can work with you to schedule an accessible tour. Please contact Sheila Ruen at sruen[at] and she will make the arrangements. Accessibility is important to us, and we want everyone to be able to share in the Ford House experience. If you have more questions you can also call Sheila at 313-884-4222.
