There are some beautiful pieces from Tiffany. There are solo pieces from Calder, Picasso and other historical figures. One intriguing piece is from a "Book of Hours." The page is small and double sided. These books were a best seller in Medieval times for the...More

One of the best things about this collection is the beautiful building it is housed in on the downtown Ann Arbor campus. For a (voluntary) donation you can spend an hour, or maybe two, viewing the permanent collection comprising European and Asian art, and then...More

This is a gem of a museum. There are treasures in every room, from a Turner in a drawer to a Monet on a landing to a fabulous modern art exhibition. It is well worth a vist.

This museum is located right on campus. There is a varied collection with something for everyone. Museum is not large and you can spend as much time as you want. There is no admission charge but a recommended $10.00 donation box st the entrance. Museum...More

This is a great accessible museum and a nice place to introduce children to art. Because admission is free, spending short amounts of time over several visits can accommodate the attention span of younger children. The wide spaces are also stroller friendly.

Admission is free to the art museum & for people on a budget, this is perfect. We went on a rainy day, so it was a perfect cheap, all-day activity. There was so much to see, make sure you block off a couple of hours,...More

Good option to do a trip with a student that does not involve thousands of people and sports - interesting collection, old and new. Worth a visit!

I came for a special exhibit and didnt have time to visit all of the permanent collection. Nonetheless, I was impressed and will return. It is a small collection, but it has impressive South Asian and European pieces.

For a University museum the collection is quite diverse. Since the expansion of the exhibition space a few years back, the shows have been more broadly displayed and much of the archived material is now on display. Always a notable stop when on campus.

This well kept medium sized museum has a bit of all gentries of art in its galleries. From ancient to modern and far east to west. A few well know artists are displayed. Look for the cabinets that have drawers holding art pieces, you will...More

No, sorry. The museum uses Mondays, as most do, to clean the galleries and shift art.
