Attraction details
Owner description: Grand Rapids' pride in native son and 38th American President Gerald R. Ford is reflected in the museum that honors him, which transports you back to the 70s through interactive displays and holograms, including a chance to eavesdrop on an eventful day in the Oval Office.

We came to town to visit family from oregon and wanted to do some site seeing. We decided to check this place out. It was truly an excellent experience, my son who loves cars had a blast. It was really neat to walk around and check out the different exhibits

We visited the Gerald R. Ford Museum in Grand Rapids in May 2018. We did not know exactly what to expect, but we very pleasantly surprised. It was interesting to see information about events that we could actually remember. It is not a large museum, but it is well organized and has a lot of information about President Ford. We enjoyed our visit.

We really were surprised by the museum. Loved seeing the oval office and getting a seat in the cabinet. It sparked some great conversations for the rest of the day.

Very much enjoyed this museum! I learned about the Ford presidency but mostly enjoyed learning more about his and Betty’s personal life. What an amazing couple. May they Rest In Peace.

We spent a couple of hours browsing the museum and really learned a lot. Warm & friendly staff. The facilities & grounds are immaculate. FREE parking is a huge plus, too.
