The Detroit region is an established and growing center for arts and culture, making it a popular destination for tourists and residents alike.

In addition to housing several flourishing artist communities, the Detroit region is home to more than 30 art museums, most notably the Detroit Institute of Arts, the sixth-largest fine arts museum in the United States.

The region also has the largest collection of African-American art and artifacts in the world, which are housed at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. In addition, the region was first to establish a free-standing Holocaust Memorial Center, which has vividly portrayed the Holocaust for more than 25 years. The Arab American National Museum is the first and only museum of its kind in the United States devoted to recording the Arab American experience.

With more than 40 theaters, the Detroit region is second only to New York City, which is why Detroit is proud to host the beautifully restored Fox Theatre and Max M. Fisher Music Center, home to the world renowned Detroit Symphony Orchestra under the musical direction of Leonard Slatkin.
