Grand Rapids — Discover Gerald R. Ford in our newly renovated Museum, with six galleries incorporating technology which allows visitors to dig deeper into topics of interest. Explore Ford’s early years in Foundations of a Civic Life and his public service career as Congressman from Michigan in Serving the People.

With plans to retire, learn how Congressman Ford’s life took an unexpected turn when he was tapped to become Vice President and a few short months later was sworn in as the 38th President of the United States in Integrity at the Helm. The impact Gerald R. Ford made on our nation is illustrated in the final three galleries, Citizenship by Example, Funeral and Memorial Tributes, and Legacy Experience.
