This museum is a treasure. It is just large enough for a half day or full day visit. There are some impressive Rembrandts (in drawers), ask the guards for directions to them. The permanent collection of works by tiffany is very beautiful as was the temporary exhibit of native American contemporary art. Large asian, oriental and european collection. Something not... More

Small museum, and nice to see. Admission is free, so it is an interesting thing to do if you have some time. Don't expect a world class museum, but still I do recommend it.

Had some time between a wedding and the reception so I wandered in and found it surprisingly nice. Works by the famous and less famous.

Went there when it was first open. I like the layout and artworks.... but the museam feel a bit small and 1-1.5 hours is enough to see everything. Note I normally like to spend 2-3 hours in a larger museum.

We were pleasantly surprised to see the collection at the UofM Museum of Art. They had many nice American paintings and more European than I expected. The museum itself is beautiful, and the admission is free. We made a donation, and it was well worth it. The dishes and Asian artifacts were abundant. No more than an hour to visit... More

Not only is the art inside of the museum incredible, so too is the building that houses them. This museum is located in the middle of the University's central campus...the buildings are absolutely gorgeous. The collection inside of this museum is extensive and impressive. In particular, the Asian art is especially beautiful. There are also some wonderful contemporary pieces. And... More

I attended a reception for the Shangri La exhibit and got a chance to see the renovated museum space. It's not a major museum but it's a worthwhile visit - check out the Tiffany glass! Wow.
