    I would recommend if you've already been to the museum to go down there on Thursday evenings in the fall and check out the Detroit Film Theatre. They usually have an eclectic collection of excellent foreign films at $7.50. The place is

    This is the best place for some culture in Detroit, if not in the whole state of Michigan. Whether you want to drop by with your family or take a field trip, there's something for everyone, no matter what your tastes in art. It's just a

    This place is wonderful for the family. While not as large as a place like the Met in New York, the art is varied and extensive. There are often special cultural events, eg. Japanese art, complete with performers from Japan, and
