Giving Tuesday

With more than 26 million artifacts in our collections at The Henry Ford, storing them all can be a challenge, especially with large industrial, agricultural and transportation objects. That changed with the creation of our Main Storage Building, or as we call it, MSB.

Now, after our teams' hard work of moving so many objects into MSB, we're facing another large, crucial project — replacing the building’s roofing system. The new state-of-the-art system will include appropriate climate control for artifacts and add a greater layer of protection for this incomparable collection. It’s a $2 million project, and we need your help toward ensuring these important artifacts are protected. Please consider a gift at any level. Every gift will be matched by the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of a special challenge grant.

Thank you for your support.
