It's a nice place to explore different types of styles and contempory art. Along with doing homework in a quiet place.

The hidden jewel of Michigan is the right word. Enjoy all the wonderful pieces of art. The museum even runs movies several times a month. If you want a classy place to rent, the FIA is the place for it!

I recently drove up to the FIA for my first visit and had a very great experience. I had no idea that the museum had such an impressive variety of collections. The History of Printmaking exhibit was especially memorable as it was both beautiful and very informative. I will definitely be coming back soon!

There is no downside to the FIA. Its presentation of well known works of art, paintings and presentations is unparalleled. And the FOMA film series is outstanding.

Unfortunately, the conference I was with only ate a meal and used a meeting room, but in the quick run I made through a few galleries, the exhibitions looked terrific. The overall architecture is beautiful, and I would definitely like to return when I have more time!

I let my better half choose between FIA and the Sloan. She chose FIA. They had a lot of good exhibits, and look to have a couple of new temporary exhibits ready here soon. Too bad I live in Nashville now so we can't see them. I just don't understand now why I, after being born and raised in Flint,... More

The FIA has a wonderful gallery. They also have a gift shop full of cool gifts for children and art lovers. I haven't tried the Cafe but it is always busy. Seating was also limited when I last went to the cafe. The FIA offers classes and summer programs as well as special events. My favorite events include the First... More
