The Henry Ford in Dearborn has extended its hours due to the popularity of the “Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes” exhibition, which is at the museum for a limited time.
Beginning Monday, the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation will return to its normal hours of 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. every day. The institution will operate at reduced daily capacities in accordance with state, federal, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
“Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes” made its Midwest premiere at the museum on July 16 and closes Jan. 31, 2021. The limited-engagement exhibition covers 80 years of history and features more than 300 artifacts, including Marvel’s earliest comic book, props and costumes from the films, and rare, hand-drawn images of heroes by the artists who first designed them.
The exhibition has experienced multiple sold-out dates. The Henry Ford encourages guests to purchase tickets in advance. Tickets to “Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes” are $10 for members of the Henry Ford. Non-member ticket prices include admission to the museum and are $35 for adults, $28.75 for youth, and $32.50 for seniors. Children ages 5 and under are free.
Greenfield Village, which opened with the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation as part of the museum’s multiphase reopening, will continue to be open Thursday through Sunday. The Ford Rouge Factory Tour and Giant Screen Experience will remain closed.
“Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes” is produced by SC Exhibitions, Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) in Seattle, and Marvel Themed Entertainment. The exhibition debuted at MoPOP in 2018.
The Henry Ford has several attractions that focus on innovation, ingenuity, and resourcefulness in America. The organization recently launched Reactivate The Henry Ford, a support fund to address the projected $10 million-$20 million budget deficit from its nearly 16-week closure.
