“an excellent small museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I liked the fact that this is a small museum. You can cover it in a couple of hours without being rushed or overwhelmed by too many displays. Every thing is well presented in a very pleasing atmosphere.

“Nice place to spend a couple hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

The University Art Museum galleries are set in a beautiful building. Sometimes exhibits are specially curated, and other times they include items in the permanent collection. Either way, there are always beautiful and interesting works to see. The museum is well worth a visit.
