Been here several times, always something different. This time saw the Star Wars exhibit with hubby, we both loved it. Wish we lived closer so we could go more often. If you live in Oakland, Wayne, or Macomb counties the general admission is free.

I have always enjoyed the Print collection and, of course the Diego Rivera murals are world famous. One day is not enough to see all the material in the museum.
