A Second Empire/Gothic Revival-style home completed in 1872, Art House is located in the historic Brush Park neighborhood of Detroit.  Since 1981 it has served as a center for art and architectural study and a tour destination for those wanting to relive an era of graciousness that was once found in the city of Detroit when it was known as the “Paris of the Midwest.

 The interiors of Art House preserve original fireplaces, over-mantle mirrors, woodwork, wall coverings, decorative plaster, stenciling, Minton floor tiles, parquet floors, and etched glass.  The art on view includes European and American paintings, drawings and watercolors.  Decorative arts are represented by collections of porcelain, glass and silver.  With period furnishings and artworks and artifacts spanning 2000 years of human history, Art House is truly one of Detroit’s hidden gems.

Your guided tour of 1.5 – 2 hours will take in all three floors of the home.

 Cost: $20.00 U.S. per person
