Being a local, I have been here many times. The murals are the most interesting for me but I like to walk through the rooms and take in the art as well

So surprised to see such a beautiful place with a wide ranging collection. Diego Rivera murals were amazing. The displays of French art history and dining were especially pleasant and interactive. "I Spy" clues were fun too - even for the teenagers.

Always a fabulous place to visit, especially Friday evenings. The Rivera court is a great place to watch the murals, enjoy the show on most Friday evenings.

This was my first visit in years and I was delighted by the fresh and interesting exhibits. We spent 3 hours and still didn't see everything. So much history represented in the art. This reminds us of the grand place Detroit 100 years ago.
