Ghosts of Piquette Tour
@ Piquette Plant
The Piquette Plant, better known as the birthplace of the Model T, has a pretty unique way of bringing history to life. Or rather back from the dead, for that matter. For the Ghosts of Piquette Tour, the plant will be filled with “ghosts” that will tell visitors about the early days of the factory, and will let them go into the plant’s dark, creaky spaces. Tickets are $18.

Damned: An Exhibition of Enlightened Darkness
