The Many Wonderful Detroit Museums


The Detroit Institute of Arts.The Detroit Museums are a great for children and adults. You can find many contemporary and traditional art museums in the area, and even science and photo museums. Want to experience some culture in the city? Besides entertainment and nightlife, the attractions in the museums in Detroit are one of the best ways to do this.



The number of museums in the area are by no means small , it would definitely take you days to truly experience and enjoy them all while in the process learning many great about the D as well as other things. In the Detroit museums, you will find some of the most stunning and diverse museums in the country. Art galleries and all kinds of exhibits are all aroundMany people who travel into the city are truly surprised when they come because they were not aware that the city had this many museums on such a high calibur.

The toughest thing to do will be finding which Detroit museums to go to. If you're in town for just a short stay, say two or three days, you may be only able to get to one or two especially since there will probably be more things you will want to see in the city. I would recommend starting in the downtown area and moving outwards as the cultural district/midtown has many museums all clustered in one area which makes it very easy to go to two or more in a day.

During Christmas time, the culture district comes alive with many Christmas activities, festivals, shows, and events. I particularly like the Noel Night events every year. Kids really love it as well and it really brings back some childhood memories of Christmas time. Here are the following museums in the area for you to check out:
  • Historical Museum This is a well known attraction and museum in the city. It's popular with kids and adults. There's so much to explore here.

  • The Detroit Institute of Arts The is one of the more well known art museums in the country. Many people aren't even aware that an art museum of this calibur is in the city.

  • The Charles Wright Museum of African American History One of the well known African American museums in the country. Many great exhibits for people of all races to enjoy.

  • The Science Center One of my favorite attractions is the Detroit Science Center. It is especially popular with the kids. If you have kids with you, this should be one of the places you should go. Not only will the kids have fun, I'm sure you will as well. It also sports and IMAX theatre so check which movies are playing as well.

  • Hitsville USA Hitsville is a well known attraction in the city. It has all the history of the great musical era when Motown Records dominated the charts.

  • Greenfield Village and Henry Ford Museum I truly LOVE this place. Being here really makes you feel like you've travelled back in time. It's an actual village which takes you through many time periods in American History
