About Detroit Institute Of Arts, Detroit

Located in midtown Detroit, the Detroit Institute of Arts has one of the largest, most valued art collections in the USA.  The Museum opened its doors in 1888 with the collective contribution of several of Detroit’s leading businessmen.

This monolithic white marble structure, covering an area of 658,000 square feet, is home to over 100 galleries. The DIA boasts of a multicultural and multinational survey of human creativity from prehistory to the 21 century valued at $ 8.1 billion.

The DIA is also home to courtyard murals that are said to be the institute’s finest assets.

With regular film screenings, Fridays are a great time to visit during the warmer months to sit on the lawn and listen to bands performing. The photography gallery, home to some of the most riveting pictures, in the basement is not to be missed.  The Kresge Court is the perfect place to grab a snack and something to drink.

Detroit Institute Of Arts, Detroit Reviews - Write a Review

  • A wonderful museum with artwork from many different eras and in a wide variety of styles. The building itself is a beautiful throwback to the grandeur of Detroit in its golden age. There is an intricate and large mural created by Diego Rivera that takes up an entire interior courtyard. The museum staff has done an excellent job of making the museum come to life through its programming and interactive events. This place is a must-see for any visitor to Detroit!

  • We are very fortunate to have the DIA! A wonderful museum with lots of history. They also feature world class traveling exhibits. Love the focus on various ethnicities. Wonderful gift store, and cheap and easy parking.

  • Amazing museum. All staff members guards are so knowledgeable and helpful as well. Need to spend at least two days in Detroit just to enjoy their vast and historically significant collections. Also I noticed that they have many events there. So check their calendar to plan your trip.

  • I love the many different exhibits here and the fact that Oakland county residents can get in free. Also the free coat check in is great. Parking is of course a small challenge if u do not want to pay. Mostly over weekends but if u don't mind paying its very convenient.

  • I love visiting during the day when it's not so busy. If you haven't been, I promise you won't be disappointed. There is a lot to see with a little bit for everyone.
