MAY 14, 2021 IMPORTANT UPDATE: Earlier today the governor made an announcement that aligns with the recent CDC guidelines, indicating that fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to wear masks indoor or outdoor under certain conditions, or be required to social distance. Until there is more clear guidance from the State of Michigan or the City of Detroit and protocols are officially updated, the DIA will continue to require team members and visitors to wear a mask, practice social distancing, and follow all other established protocols regardless of vaccine status.
General admission is always free for residents of Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties. Find other admission information on our Visit page >
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we operate the museum differently to ensure a safe environment for our visitors and staff.

Reservations are available for all visitors 12 p.m.–4 p.m. Wednesday; 9 a.m.–4 p.m. on Thursday and Friday; and 10 a.m.–5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Each of us plays a role in a safe museum visit, with social distancing, face masks, and additional health and safety precautions in place. According to state guidelines, all visitors age 2 and up are required to wear a mask at all times.

We prepared for our reopening in partnership with NSF International. This was a thorough process, one that considered many variables including state and city guidelines, close coordination with city government and cultural center institutions, and ongoing discussions with our own staff and museum peers around the world. We recognize that circumstances may change at any moment. But we remain hopeful that we will be able to serve our public under the safest possible conditions and new norms.
