After an unprecedented four-month shutdown of the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) due to the state of emergency from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The DIA is open to members and residents of the three Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties and other parts of Michigan.
In a Fecebook post, museum workers thanked the community for their patience and understanding, as after its opening DIA is operating the museum differently to ensure a safe environment for its visitors and staff.
DIA’s galleries were reopened, and each of its employees plays a role in maintaining a safe environment for everyone, with social distancing, masks, and additional health and safety precautions.
Virtual movies, family activities, and other online programs continue to be offered every Monday through DIA at Home. Subscribe here: https://www.dia.org/subscribe
Temporary tickets to the DIA are free for all visitors. Regardless of your residence.
Remember that if you live in Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties, admission to this museum is free, but not for the rest of the public.
So if you’re not a resident of those counties, don’t forget to take the opportunity to visit this important museum for free, as starting in August, general admission fees will be reinstated for visitors residing outside of Macomb counties, Oakland and Wayne.
But note the museum’s hours of operation: Wednesday through Friday, 9 a.m. at 4 p.m. (9 a.m. to 10 a.m. for at-risk visitors) and Saturdays and Sundays, from 10 a.m. at 5 p.m. For more information, visit https://www.dia.org/reopening for more information on how to reserve tickets in advance.
