Our Mission

The mission of the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit is to present art at the forefront of contemporary culture. As a non-collecting institution, MOCAD is responsive to the cultural content of our time, fueling crucial dialogue, collaboration, and public engagement.


After 5 years of bringing important contemporary art to Detroit, MOCAD is introducing a suggested donation of $5 for entry into its exhibitions, during normal operating hours. This donation is offered on a sliding scale, which allows the public to “pay what they can” to support the Museum. Members, students and children under the age of 12 will continue to receive free admission. Admission into public programs and other special events may vary. MOCAD is a registered 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization.

Our Space

Located on Woodward and Garfield between the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Detroit Institute of the Arts, Wayne State University and the College for Creative Studies, the museum is an innovative addition to Detroit’s vibrant Midtown neighborhood, and functions as a hub for the exploration of emerging ideas in the contemporary arts. The 22,000 square foot building, a former auto dealership, has been simply renovated to maintain its historic character. With its raw, flexible and cavernous spaces, the building is well suited to the exhibition of contemporary art. Our ambitious series of public programs includes lectures, musical performances, films, literary readings and educational activities for children.


All of MOCAD’s entrances and public areas are wheelchair accessible, including the galleries. A wheelchair is available free of charge at the front desk on a first-come, first-served basis. Service animals are welcome at MOCAD.

Museum Tours

Please contact the museum by email or phone at 313.832.6622 to schedule a tour. All MOCAD tours are free and open to the public.
