If you are a Michigander this museum on the campus of Saginaw Valley State University, just off I-75 at exit 160, is a MUST see. I am a l;little biased as Marshall was my Dad. This museum celebrates his artistic and humanitarian legacy. His most important mentor was Carl Milles, a sculptor who studies under August Rodin at the turn... More

Like the history and seeing the evolution of the work of pieces that I am familiar with, and new pieces that I discovered there I also enjoyed the setting on Saginaw Valley State campus.

Excellent display of larger than life sculptures by Marshal Frederick's. Truly an asset to our community. A great place to go for quiet reflection and appreciation of art....Call ahead for hours.

We loved the sculptures in this museum, and the peacefulness. Glad we were able to take pictures. Mi Husband does sculptures so this was really amazing to see what tools they worked with back then.. It was just so many vida sculptures by Fredericks inside and outside. Loved the campus, we walked around it was such a nice day. We... More

The sculpture found inside and outside of this Museum was beautiful and well worth the short trip to find it. Free parking and admission also. It is nice to have a superior museum in Saginaw.

Based on Tripadvisor reviews, I wanted to stop in to the museum on way to Mackinaw City. What was initially intended as a way to spend a few hours on the way northward through Michigan became one of the highlights of our trip. Outside the museum are many of the sculptures. Inside are numerous plaster models used in creating finished... More

Wonderful pieces of work inside and out at the campus of the University- really enjoyed looking at and taking pictures of them! Not especially keen on sculpture usually but these were amazing and it is well worth the trip to see them.

My group stopped here during a convention and I'm so glad they did. I had absolutely no idea this museum even existed. The saddest part is that I didn't have enough time to take everything in. Although the museum is small there is so much information to read about pertaining to each sculpture. The ambiance in the museum is very... More

I know people who have lived in Saginaw their whole lives and have never visited the museum. It is truly something to be proud of. Located on the lovely campus of Saginaw Valley State University, the museum houses a vast collection of Fredericks sculptures. Fans of The Cross in the Woods in Indian River should see the exhibit.
