  • Motown Historical Museum
    Perhaps the Motown Museum's most interesting artifact is the museum itself. The unassuming, two-story house doubled as Berry Gordy's original recording studio and administrative offices, where the likes of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and Gladys Knight created more than 100 Top-10 hits. Visitors can tour the original control room and Studio A before perusing rare photos and singing along in the famous echo chamber.

  • Semseg
    SemSeg's Segway experts equip urban explorers to cruise through Detroit at up to 12.5 miles per hour during self-guided tours. A brief orientation covers proper techniques for turning, stopping, and impromptu jousting. Then, motorists hop aboard scooters and travel up to 24 miles on a single charge. The long battery life allows motorists to cruise down the Riverfront, circle 14-acre Hart Plaza, and crisscross the Rivard Plaza in a single trip. Though SemSeg encourages DIY tours, their guides lead weekend tours through downtown and down the Riverwalk.

  • Detroit Derby Girls
    Detroit Derby Girls' wicked roller chicks (some of whom can be seen in the 2009 film Whip It!) have been blocking, jamming, and pivoting since the first Women’s Flat Track Derby Association conference in 2006. Today, as many as five home teams sprint around the track at the Detroit Masonic Temple. To join their ranks, strap on your skates and head to Derby! U, an action-packed one-day recruitment seminar.

  • The Heidelberg Project
    As a response to the deterioration of the neighborhood where he was raised, artist Tyree Guyton conceived of this outdoor art installation in 1986. Made almost entirely of found objects, it’s a fun and whimsical wonderland that’s sure to spark conversations with kids about what art really is. Interactive art in the form of a small playground stands on the northwest corner.

  • Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit
    For an art museum, the flat, cracked facade of the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) is shockingly stark, yet there's beauty in its realness. The walls that once framed an abandoned car dealership now host Barry McGee's "Untitled" mural of writ-large graffiti on the building's exterior, greeting people with an uncompromising sense of honesty that permeates through to the art collection within. MOCAD's informal approach to art exhibition shares a kindred spirit with few other museums, with exhibits that swap museum-imposed artifice for relatable, raw beauty. That didn't go unnoticed by The New York Times, who hailed the collection for "seeing the seediness, and celebrating it." Never straying from a mission to present contemporary works that reflect the current culture, inspire dialogue, and engage the community, MOCAD's stunning exhibitions narrate the history and future of the Motor City. Public programs such as lectures, literary readings, live music performances, films, and children's educational activities further engage visitors, and the MOCAD store offers exclusive t-shirts, magazines, kid's toys, and jewelry.
