I went here as part of a class project and was amazed that one of my favorite Picasso's was on display. Beautiful building with a nice flow. I've since gone back on a few occasions to explore that which I missed on my first visit.

We arrived in Ann Arbor too early to check into our hotel. We visited the Museum and spent 2 very pleasurable hours going through the 5 floors of exhibits. They have a nice selection of artists and some areas with pottery, furniture, etc. All very enjoyable.

They had various types of artwork and it's a decent size. It is also free admission. I liked the photo exhibition they had on when I visited. I would go here again if i returned.

Small collection of very interesting art, in a beautiful two-wing building in which all visitors instantly feel like being lifelong members of an exclusive club of art lovers.

We could not believe that this was a free museum. Lots of priceless pieces and exhibits. They allow non flash pics in most of the area. Small gift shop, and refreshments for sale. Located around the busy campus area. May have to walk up to a mile to park but worth the wait. Make this part of your campus tour.

No food or coffee service available in the museum but the Michigan Union is across the street with a food court and coffee shop. It is made... More
