MOCAD
DETROIT CITY is comprised of three concurrent series: Detroit Affinities (exhibition), Detroit Speaks (education), and Detroit Stages (performance). This multi-year research program is one of the most ambitious undertakings to date at MOCAD.



Parking and Directions to MOCAD

Detroit is getting a street car line, the M1 Rail! As such construction has made some areas of Woodward Avenue difficult to travel. For full lane closures and directions, check the M1 Rail's interactive map here.

Our parking lot is located off of Garfield St. We recommend taking John R to Garfield. If you are traveling from I-75 northbound take the exit at Mack Ave. to John R north. If you are traveling southbound on I-75, take the Warren exit west to John R south. Visitors traveling from the M-10 Lodge Freeway take the Forest Ave exit east to John R south.

Please call the Museum at 313.832.6622 if you need further assistance.
