Please tell me about things to do in Detroit -- on Christmas Day.

I'll be on a road trip between Christmas and New Year's, and the first day -- Christmas Day itself -- is to be a travel day, with a few hours available in the greater Detroit area. (The plan was to go to the DIA, whose website did not show being closed on Christmas Day itself, but upon calling to confirm, are definitely closed.)
So now there's a hole to fill, not wanting to spend Christmas Day itself back at the motel. Is there anything open? Museums, shopping malls? Best guess so far looks like Belle Isle and its conservatory, but I'd like a Plan B available. Having the car extends our range a bit, but it already being a travel day there...
I will be travelling with Mother Renault, a little old lady with a tricky hip, so indoor activities are preferable (but not absolutely necessary). Art and architecture are big interests (but non-trespassy ones). Walking tours? Driving tours? Shopping? Anything?
I've checked out the other Detroit questions, but the Christmas Day angle throws everything off.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm at a total loss.
