Beautiful Museum!! Lots to See!!
Jun 2021
The Detroit Institute of Arts is like a palace of arts.
The building is imposing and impressive as you approach it and is equally impressive and well laid out inside.
There is a lot to see and you are better off deciding on your priorities because you cannot grasp it all in one visit.
We concentrated on the Robert Blackburn prints, the Native American exhibit (A Definite Must!!), the temporary exhibition of 1950-2020 Automobile Design and the Industrial Revolution giant murals.
In between the above, just walking through the corridors between exhibits was extremely interesting and rewarding.
We'll Definitely Be Back!!
Magnificent Art and History Palace!!

Nice and quiet visit
Jun 2021
Due to covid restrictions, they were only letting in a certain number of people at every reservation time and that made for a very intimate visit to the museum. I loved it. We were in some rooms by ourselves! Nice displays, big rooms, good flow through the museum, and a lot to see. Just a nice visit overall.

Beautiful!
Mar 2021
There were so many kinds of beautiful art here! With social distancing, it was the perfect way to see the exhibits. (Just don't mistake the back employee entrance for the main entrance. The person in charge was not happy with us.)

Always amazing - and open with reservations during the pandemic
Jan 2021
Getting a reservation is required during the pandemic, but it is so worth it. This is a fantastic art institute. Visiting now is actually amazing, as they limit how many people can enter at a time, and you end up having the gallery rooms usually to yourself!

A great safe indoor activity
Jan 2021
This is a nice safe activity. You buy tickets in advance to enter at certain times of the day. Everything is laid out to walk in a certain one way direction. The current auto expo is really good.

Striptease
Jun 2020
I felt like the 50-minute choreographed striptease was unnecessary. This place is like a little taste of home. I grew up in a trailer park.

Art and Culture to Escape the Pandemic
Dec 2020
A cultural and art experience in the midst of a pandemic was a great escape. The DIA did an impressive job creating a "safe environment" for visitors.
