I don't mean to give this museum a poor rating but, honestly, there was not much on display. We were told that they only display a small portion of there permanent collection at any one time. (I thought that a permanent collection was always on display?) Again, do not mean to complain--admission is free, it is on the contained campus... More

The DeVos always has interesting exhibits and is a wonderful regional art museum. The University has a diverse collection and a great curator!

This is a small art museum on the campus of Northern Michigan University. It does not charge admission but seems to have been established as an outlet for students and local artists or people from NMU or Marquette who want to display a significant amount of their work.

Outstanding artist, NMU instructor. Museum has many fine exhibits throughout the year. A must see for anyone visiting the Marquette area. Permanent collection also very good. Museum is less than fifteen years old and has a great future. Nothing like it north of Escanaba or east of Green Bay.
