Summer is here and so is the heat. This is the perfect time to visit the free Detroit Historical Museum to enjoy not only air conditioning, but their latest exhibits as well. The two major current rotating exhibits are Out on the Town: Drinking and Dining in Detroit Since 1920 and Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors.

In the Out on the Town: Drinking and Dining in Detroit Since 1920 guest will get to learn about Detroit during the prohibition area up to the current area. There will be outfits, artifacts, stories, and more about the unique venues that have lived in Detroit. Find out more about iconic places like Cliff Bells or Roostertail, as well as some gems that the modern public knows little about. It's worth it for any drinker to check out.

The Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors has put together a beautiful exhibit in the community gallery. One of the oldest women's art associations brings over 90 pieces from their members to share with the city of Detroit. All Members are local artists from southeastern Michigan which means the art is from local artists that you may even know.

Remember while the Detroit Historical Museum is free, parking with them is $5. You can also do street parking or park with the DIA, Wayne State, or the Michigan Science Center.
