About this event:

This one-of-a-kind, behind-the-scenes guided tour takes you on a special exploration of Ford House, peeking behind closed doors, navigating private staircases, and exploring hidden spaces. You will see the infirmary, underground tunnel* to the Powerhouse, attic, and expansive basement. Hear about the devoted professional staff who worked behind the scenes and how the house has adapted and changed over time.

This tour is about 50 minutes long and requires climbing up and down stairs. Due to these constraints, it is inaccessible for individuals with mobility challenges. Tickets are limited, so advance registration is strongly recommended.

* The tunnel is a part of the Nooks & Crannies tour, but on occasion, we must close it for maintenance and preservation. To find out if the tunnel is available on the day of your tour, please contact 313-884-4222.


Museums for All and Military Visitors must purchase their tickets at the Admission Desk in our Visitor Center. A valid ID is required. To place tickets on hold, please call us at 313-884-4222.
