If you only have a limited amount of time on the UM campus as we did and want to see something it has to offer, this is a good attraction to take advantage of. It has works by Tiffany, Monet, Picasso, Warhol and others. It is conveniently located directly across from the university union. A great way to spend an... More

Don't be silly and walk past without going in. This is a beautiful, calm respite from the pace of the world. Get in there and soak in the beauty of man's creation.

This is a small but very nice museum with a good Asian art collection. The new wing is designed for browsing, and from any gallery, you can see things in others that look interesting. Children will be intrigued by the peace sculpture made of guns. They can also swing on the sculpture near the ground level door.

With the exception of the new contemporary galleries, I found this to be only an "average" museum -- not up to the very high ratings given by others. We spent about an hours there and left. The Picasso's are really incredible! Don't devote hours to spend here if you're visiting. Hope this review helps you plan your trip.

This place is located right in the middle of the central campus of the University of Michigan, right across from the Michigan Union building. The best part is that no admission is charged, although donations are always welcomed. If you have visited large art museums in other cities, (e.g. NYC or Chicago) the collection will seem extremely small and limited.... More

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.
