    Una institución en Detroit. Buena colección de arte pero la joya es el mural de Diego Rivera que merece la pena por si solo. El parking son 7$ sin importar el tiempo.

    Pet the donkey! The only piece in the museum you're allowed to touch to show the damage our grubby little hands can have.

    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.
