Van Goh in America is a never before curated exhibited on display at the Detroit Institute of Arts and you don’t want to miss it. The final day of the exhibit is Sunday, January 22nd.

Almost everyone knows of Van Gogh and right now at the DIA you can find 74 works on display – ones you know and love and pieces you’ve never seen before. The beauty of Detroit’s reknown cultural institution is that it IS kid-friendly. Kids can’t touch the art and quiet voices are expected but throughout the museum there are literal touch points (Eye Spy) to keep kids engaged.

Plan your visit for Friday between 6pm and 8:30pm to get creative in the galleries. The DIA is hosting a free (with general admission), family-drawing session in the modern art gallery for kids ages 6 and older. Pre-registration is required.

On Saturday, January 21st, you can sit back and enjoy the New York International Children’s Film Festival. The FREE (with general admission) movie showing is designed for kids ages 5 to 10 and pre-registration isn’t required.

General admission to the Detroit Institute of Arts is FREE for residents of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb county. Guests from other areas have a general admission fee of $14 for adults and $6 for kids ages 6 to 17. All guests have to pay for tickets to the Van Gogh exhibit that range from $0 to $29, depending on residency. Tickets are timed and you can buy online or in-person (but they could sell out). Get tickets here.

The DIA is open Tuesdays – Thrusdays from 9am to 4pm, Fridays from 9am to 9pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm. Street parking is available and a surface lot is located across from the museum’s John R entrance.
