Tickets available to tour Detroit's Packard Plant for $40

You can now take a tour of the historic Packard Plant in Detroit thanks to Pure Detroit.

The company is now offering tours of the ruins of the Packard Plant on Grand Blovd for $40 per person.

The ticket will get you a 90 minute tour that covers the 40 acres that the massive plant covers in Detroit. According to Pure Detroit, you must be 18 to take the tour and you have to sign a waiver.

There are even more requirements: you must wear long pants, closed toed shoes, and the provided hard hat. Children under the age of 18 are not allowed and you have to shwo your ID when you first arrive and sign the waiver.

Umbrellas are allowed to protect you from the sun or rain. You're encouraged to bring a camera to document your trip as well.

You cannot bring any pets or kids with you on the tour. You also can't bike, skateboard, roller blade, ride a scooter, or pull a wagon - the only mode of transportation allowed are your feet. That means it's not wheelchair accessible.

Also - you can bring a reusable water bottle but disposable/returnables are not allowed inside either.

Renovations to the historic plant started in May. The first phase will create a community of mixed-use spaces including multifamily residential units, recreation, artist work space and light manufacturing. This phase alone will cost $22 million.
