Dear Ford Piquette Avenue Plant Guests & Members,

On June 1st Governor Whitmer announced that museums will be able to reopen in Michigan starting next week. Museums can open June 8, 2020 subject to capacity rules similar to those for retail stores.

We are currently planning how to re-open in a way that will be safe for both visitors and staff. Please follow our Facebook page and website to get the latest information on a reopening date.

Please note that when we reopen all visitors must wear a face covering over his or her nose and mouth—such as a homemade mask, scarf, bandanna, or handkerchief—when inside the museum. If you do not have one then they will be available for purchase at the museum. Social distancing rules of remaining at least six feet from people from outside the individual’s household is required. Cash will temporarily not be accepted for payment so please plan accordingly. Extensive daily cleaning will be done at the museum and sanitizing stations will be available at the museum for our guests. All hands on exhibits have been temporarily removed from the museum.

Executive Director
