    The Diego Rivera mural alone makes it worth the trip! If you are there during normal business hours, check out the murals at the Detroit Public Library just west of the DIA across Woodward.

    You have to see the Diego Rivera Gallery yourself. The photos not only don't do it justice, but they tend to just show the labor-positive aspects. The art shows the positive and the negative duality.

    The gallery frescoed entirely by Diego Rivera had me awestruck.

    The wide range of art in a space that will amaze you. Add free admission for tri-county residents and $7 parking the DIA becomes the entertainment bargain in the Detroit Metro area.

    Pet the donkey! The only piece in the museum you're allowed to touch to show the damage our grubby little hands can have.
  • The Wall Street Journal
    Shows a mix of contemporary and classic films. Tickets are cheap, there’s a cafe that serves wine upstairs and you can see the museum’s Diego Rivera murals before the show. Read more

    Plan your visit, take your time (4-5 hrs) here is a mural painted by Diego Rivera. The only one outside of Mexico. All sections are very good and not too crowded. Sit down and relax!!!

    Decent collection, their modern selection has more impressionists than traditional modernism. Great cafe and low entry fee.
