I was so surprised at how close we were able to get to actual Van Gogh and other art pieces! Went through about six rooms and just touched the surface of the great art collection there! Will definitely return to continue the tour!

We've been members of the DIA forever. It's a wonderful place to stop and spend a couple hours anytime. And if there's a special exhibition it is always worth it to attend.

It's always an experience attenting the "Detroit Intitude of Arts". There's so much to see and learn from there!! The people are friendly. You get yo meet people from different nationalities. It's very clean and it's a place to relax and talk while your having coffee or a snack.

I wasn't sure what I'd be seeing when I decided to go with my friend to the Detroit Institute of Arts, but I'm super glad I went. I often say that I judge a city on the quality of its museums, especially its art galleries. With a fantastic collection, great value when it comes to admission, and something for everyone,... More
