Did you know the Detroit Institute of Arts, also known as the DIA, features one of the largest art collections in the United States?
AND it's all housed in a jaw droppingly beautiful architectural marvel!
SOUNDS AMAZING? Then you need to visit the Detroit Institute of Arts!
Chris and I decided to venture to the Detroit Institute of Arts to check out their famed exhibits, exquisite murals and stunning architecture. Here's what we discovered!
The exquisite murals are one of the highlights of the Detroit Art Museum. They are two stories high and really pack an impact!
5200 Woodward Ave, Detroit, MI
There's mummies, ancient pottery, sculptures, stained glass and even a chapel from Chateau de Lannoy from 1522-1524! You definitely don't want to miss that!!
Did we fail to mention the Detroit Art Museum also has the fabulous indoor cafe? Doesn't this place just make you want to curl up with a good book, a hot coffee and just hang out?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The beautiful brick, green shrubbery, comfy couches and lamps are just too much to resist! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It almost has a Harry Potter feel, doesn't it? I just need my owl!
