1. Detroit Institute of Arts 5200 Woodward Ave, Detroit, MI 48202 (Midtown)

Detroit Institute of the Arts, located in a Beaux-Arts building in Midtown, features more than 100 galleries. One of the top six in the country, DIA's collection includes American, European, modern, contemporary, and graphic art, as well as dedicated center for African-American art. Perhaps the most famous painting in the museum is Vincent Van Gogh's 1887 self-portrait, which was the first Van Gogh to enter a US museum when the institute acquired it in 1922.
