School Field Trips

Ford Piquette Avenue Plant Educational Programs

Contact us if your school is interested in visiting the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant for your next school field trip. We have educational programs that are based upon STEM and STEAM learning modules. Each module features hands on activities that are related to different aspects of the museum. Learn about automotive history as well as the science behind it. We are able to accommodate your group and admission includes a guided tour of the factory that is geared to the age level of your students.

Age Range:
From pre-school to College. For children below high school age we do require at least one adult chaperon for every five students.

$5 per student. Adult chaperons also qualify for the $5 admission. Please call us to see if your school qualifies for discounted admission.

The building has an elevator and is handicap accessible. Please note that museum floors are uneven in some areas. Wheelchairs are available at no cost – please let us know ahead of time if someone in your group will require one.
