I never really had an appreciation for art until I went to DIA! Plan on being there for most of the day, many levels and so much to see. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes.

This is my 5 th year attending this program and I still love admiring the art deco design inside each time. The small lounge upstairs offers a lively snack just before. Don't hesitate to visit the DIA as their programs are all worthwhile
