The Diego Rivera Court is mind-blowing. The European Renaissance and Medieval art and the Early American art are inspirational. I live portrait painting and was NOT disappointed. The Picassos are easily missed so hunt them down.

An excellent destination to get away on a rainy day or a quick trip on a Friday evening for a concert. Admittance is free for Wayne, Oakland and Macomb residents. The Friday concerts lured us down but the exhibits drew us in for further exploration....More

I've visited Detroit so many times over the past 50 years and somehow have managed to miss this outstanding museum. My wife & I were greatly impressed - from the gracious exterior of the building to the peaceful Kresge Court to the quality of the...More

You would not think that Detroit has some of the worlds most famous pieces of art but we do. The DIA is outstanding with its Diago Rivera Mural, Peter Brogle Peasant Wedding and the ever famous Sculpture of The Thinker by Rodin.

Mandatory stop on any visit to Detroit. It is a great museum even if you are not an art aficionado. Just beautiful pieces all around

It is worth visiting Detroit just to see this museum. Of course there are many other reasons to visit Detroit besides the Detroit Institute of Art, but the Institute is a really big reason to go. If you go try to go into the museum...More

Spent all day at the "DIA" and if I had the time I would have returned. The Renaissance Galleries has an excellent array of artists, but the Medieval collection displayed more 13th century artifacts than most museums l've visited, nationally and abroad. The Diego Rivera...More

We had been advised to see this and we were very glad we were. It has many very interesting exhibits with interesting works of art. Unfortunately they are doing construction so some exhibits are closed but it was well worth the visit.

How much is it to get in

Response from Snuffles379 | Reviewed this property |
It is $12.50 for adults and $6.00 for children. If you are a resident of Wayne, Oakland, or Macomb county you can get in for free. Also if you are a student be sure to bring your ID, the price is $7.00 for students.

Most of the best hotels are located in the city center, roughly 2 miles from the DIA. It will be an inexpensive cab ride or Uber ride and worth it as you will be able to enjoy more of the city's off3erings while not at the DIA. Eventually (next year) there will be a light rail line that will solve that issue for visitors.

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
