After makeover, a more interactive Gerald Ford Museum

Jul 6, 2016

Current State’s Peter Whorf visits the newly renovated Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library and Museum and takes us along for a tour.


With the Michigan summer travel season in full swing, we take you to Grand Rapids today for a tour the newly-renovated Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum. The museum re-opened in June after a full re-do of much of the 54,000 square-foot facility.

Permanent exhibits continue to include a full-scale replica of the Oval Office, interactive Cabinet Room, 1976 Bicentennial display, and a section of the Berlin Wall.

Another exhibits pays tribute to the life and influence of Betty Ford, who is credited with paving the way for modern First Ladies.

Current State’s Peter Whorf and the Gerald Ford’s Public Affairs Specialist Kristin Mooney take a walk-through.
