"Detroit is rising again and so is its famed museum -- which almost lost itself in the recently famous municipal bankruptcy. But the museum will stay put and hallelujah for that. It's one of the few city art museums in which the people actually own the collection -- and it's formidable. Congratulations, Detroit."

"Maybe it's just because I love Theodore Roosevelt so much, this place transports me. Not only do I always learn something new about nature, I get to pay a visit to the animal dioramas. I like the taxidermy, but I'm usually admiring the incredible artistry of the painted landscapes, the care and the details in the backgrounds!"

"A staggeringly delicious interior, so remarkable, and all harboring the serious art collection of one very ambitious woman. I visited because I'd done the TV story of the famous art heist there and how they've left the empty frames on the wall. It took one minute for me to forget my mission and, instead, be swept up in the experience of this incredible, carefully-orchestrated collection."
