The Henry Ford is offering $5 admission to Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, Greenfield Village, Ford Rouge Factory Tour or The Henry Ford Giant Screen Experience on Saturday, November 4, 2017. Visitors can also choose to purchase two venues for $10 or three for $15. (Note: you also pay for parking). 

Jurassic Quest at DeVos Place happening on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in Grand Rapids. (IMPORTANT NOTE PER THEIR WEBSITE: There are a few tickets left for Saturday and must be purchased online. No Saturday tickets will be available at the door. There are walk-up tickets available for Friday and Sunday but that is subject to change. We recommend either attending Friday or the last 3 hours of Saturday or Sunday for the lowest wait times).

If you’re willing to drive a little further, one of our readers recommends Jurassic World: The Exhibition at the Field Museum in Chicago. Our reader also mentioned a Groupon for this event. Here’s a link to the Groupon for evening hours.
