Attention Ford Rouge Factory Tour Visitors
Because production varies by vehicle demand, you may be touring the
Dearborn Truck Plant when we are not building vehicles. Production hours
are inconsistent, and The Henry Ford does not control when trucks are
being produced. While we cannot guarantee you will see the assembly line
in full operation, you will still be able to visit the assembly line
area temporarily suspended in mid-operation. We will not be building
vehicles during daily breaks, shift changes, Saturdays, Sundays,
holidays and during the first two weeks of July. Either way, the tour
offers unique experiences with full walking access above the factory
