Target Family Days at the Henry Ford Museum - Free Admission on April 15th

Henry Ford Museum was made for family adventures. It’s fun and smart, entertaining and enlightening. Our activities and exhibits are so varied and so diverse that you may just find this the beginning of a family tradition. Bring your family and bring your friends, because on Target Family Days, all of the activities in Henry Ford Museum are absolutely free. And that includes free admission and free parking, too.

Remembering Abraham Lincoln — a most unlikely president.

It has been 150 years since Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. Yet the reverberations of that act still resonate through every layer of American society.

On April 15, during our Target Free Day, we will commemorate not just Lincoln’s death, but the life of the man who was one of our most unlikely presidents.

Lincoln was tall, gangly and unimposing. But the moment he began to speak, he revealed “keen intelligence, genuine kindness of heart and the promise of true friendship,” according to a reporter who met Lincoln during his pre-White House years.

To mark the anniversary of Lincoln’s assassination, guests will have an opportunity to see the chair he was sitting in the night of the attack in a special temporary display on the day of the event. Be sure to also visit With Liberty and Justice for All and see our copy of Lincoln’s crowning achievement — the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which legally abolished slavery throughout the United States.
  • The chair will be relocated to the front of the With Liberty & Justice for All exhibit for prominent viewing without a case.
  • Special Lincoln-related special programming..
  • Receive a free souvenir program, including a map designating Lincoln-related artifacts on exhibit (while supplies last).
  • See a video about Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation throughout the day.

It’s all thanks to the extraordinary generosity of the Target stores. Live music. Hands-on fun. Dramatic presentations. Make-and-take activities. Maybe even a scavenger hunt. You’ll also find a wide range of season-specific programming. Target Family Days are a chance for entire families to immerse themselves in the ingenious goings-on that have made The Henry Ford one of America's most popular family destinations.
