This place is fantastic! I think even non-artsy ppl will love this place. First off it's HUGE and it has something for everyone. I really love the center area cafe. Plan on having something small to eat or a coffee to just chat and relax...More

The Diego Rivera murals are fantastic. The museum has a new director who has made a lot of positive changes. Also, food is great.

This is my hometown museum and it is still one of my favorites. I've done extensive travel, including the louvre and DIA is still one of my all time faves. I also love the little cafe in the center. Such a great place to chill

This is a great place to take your students as a educator. There is so much to see here teaching from books all year long. Some children learn by seeing or touching an item. They can appreciate history and the way art is created.

Very helpful staff. We really did not have enough time to spend there. Disappointed the Andy Warhol painting wasn't available, but enjoyed the Van Gogh. Very large collection. Plan to spend a good majority of the day there to take it all in.

The Inn on Ferry Street is a bed and breakfast one block from the DIA. Other than that, you will have to stay 2-3 miles away, either at the St.Regis on West Grand Blvd. or in one of the hotels downtown. The MotorCity... More
