The collections of paintings, sculptures, ceramics, glass are pleasing and instructive to observe. It is also fun to see university students utilizing the collections as part of their classes.

This U of M art collection is close to the student union with free admission every day. Many private collections were donated so there are many fine pieces from around the world. The only negative is finding parking in the center of campus.

When we were visiting Ann Arbor this summer, we were looking for a place to spend some quiet time. Thanks to tripadvisor, we found UMMA. We went on a Sun. pm and almost had the place to ourselves. There is a lot to see here.

This museum has an incredible collection and is free to visitors. It is not too large either making it a perfect place to visit for an afternoon. The layout is convenient and well thought out. I love the location which allows you to see downtown and the U of M campus

We stopped in here before attending the football game. What a delight! They have a beautifully displayed collection of well known and some not-so-well know artists. Nice glass pieces, sculpture and gorgeous Tiffany doors. The modern annex is well done.

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.
