12.10. Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum

January 12, 2012

The permanent exhibits are the core of the Museum’s program. They allow visitors to participate in history, not just view it, while reviewing the highlights of the lives of President and Mrs. Ford. In addition to the permanent exhibits, a succession of temporary exhibits draw upon the rich holdings of the entire Presidential libraries system, the Smithsonian Institution, the National Archives, and others. Guess what this in one of the 4 museums that will be FREE 4 times this year.

Not all museum programs revolve around the exhibits schedule. Museum staff organize and host special events, everything from a 1940s fashion show to activities for school children. The Museum also hosts naturalization ceremonies for new citizens and opens the grounds to the community festivities and fireworks on the fourth of July. The Museum Store sells items relating to President and Mrs. Ford and other Presidents and First Ladies, along with a number of souvenirs.

The first “Museums Free-4-All” will take place on Sunday, January 22 with others scheduled for April 15, July 15, and October 21. The hours for free admission will be from noon to 5 p.m. on each of those days. (Special exhibit or programming fees may still apply).
