With the end of Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition at The Henry Ford approaching Sept. 30, the Dearborn historical attraction is extending its hours in order to give as many visitors the chance to "come aboard" before the exhibit sets sail.
The Henry Ford Museum will be open from 9:30-9 p.m. Sept. 24-30.
The 10,000 square-foot exhibition features more than 300 artifacts—250 of which have never been displayed in Michigan. The exhibit takes visitors back in time to 1912 as they walk through extensive room re-creations, get their photos taken near the full-scale replica of the Grand Staircase and learn about passengers on board who had local ties to Michigan.
As visitors board the newly redesigned and expanded exhibition they will receive a replica boarding pass of an actual passenger aboard Titanic. They then begin their chronological journey and “travel” through the life of the Titanic—from the ship’s construction, to its on-board passengers, its ill-fated voyage and the amazing artifact rescue efforts that involved divers returning to it in recent years.
Special timed tickets for members are $10. Non-member ticket prices include admission to the museum and are $27 for adults (13-61), $22.50 for youth (5-12), $25 for seniors (62+) and children 4 and under are free.
