Relax and recharge with your whole family

This summer, every Saturday and Sunday, the DIA transforms into the Detroit Institute of Awesome, with a weekend full of activities especially created for kids and their grown-ups. Make an art project, take a guided family tour of the collection, and visit our art carts for hands-on games for children of all ages. We’ll also have a special family program every afternoon – enjoy animated films, puppet shows or artist demonstrations.
