Dear Ford Piquette Avenue Plant Guests & Members,

The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant is temporarily closed to all visitors and tours in response to Governor Whitmer’s declaration of a state of emergency for Michigan and advisories from the Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization, due to the spread of coronavirus also known as COVID-19.

The health and safety of our visitors and our staff are our greatest concerns during this time.

The closure applies to all public tours, programs, field trips, workshops and meetings until further notice.

We have not yet determined a date to reopen the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant as we continue to monitor the situation closely. If you have already booked a tour please watch your email for more information regarding your visit.

Please check and our Facebook page for updates.

We encourage you to keep informed, take precautions and stay safe. For information on coronavirus/COVID-19 and precautionary measures, please refer to the Centers for Disease Control.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant when we can ensure a safe and healthy environment for all. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
