Fantastic collection upon collection in this museum. We took a half day off from our reunion schedule to visit, and probably only got a chance to take in 20%. Best of all, the DIA is a member of NARM, so our membership back home gets...More

The entire museum is good, but the Diego Rivera mural room is what will truly get to you. It alone is worth the cost of admission.

Don't miss this world-class art museum, located on the east side of Woodward Avenue about 2 miles north of downtown. The new Q-line trolley will take you there from the downtown area. The Diego Rivera murals are particularly impressive.

Detroit's DIA is a gem many do not know about. The collection is amazing. We brought artists from AZ and from OR and both commented they'd only read about some items before seeing them at the DIA. "I had no idea" is a common observation....More

This is my favorite place in Detroit. The art is exquisite yet evolving. The food court is lovely and the food is good. I prefer the outside-like eatery. Never ate at the cafeteria. The special events are just that. Everything is top-notch.

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
