When in Ann Arbor do not miss the opportunity to explore this museum. It has all the elements of a major art museum but on a smaller scale. You can do this museum in a short time and they have a charming good gift shop....More

Ditto the 5-star reviews. You will find Eames, Nakashima, Ernst, Tiffany, Picasso, to name just a few. This museum is just down the street from Kelsey Museum of Archaeology, so you're getting a twofer here folks, though they're both free. And both are an easy...More

Entry to the museum is free and that is a blessing! The museum contained (July 2018) art from Europe, Africa, and Asia and I liked that variety. The museum is very clean and that felt good. The museum was quiet and that enhanced the experience...More

What a pleasant surprise to find such a nice museum on campus. They had a wide assortment of excellent quality art ranging from paintings to furniture and my favorite, Tiffany glass and even a full door with Tiffany glass. What a joy!

Small but nice museum. Antiquities, modern art, architecural masterpieces, a few master works, and some beautiful religious pieces. Pay to park for a couple hours. Admission is free, but $10 donation is recommended. Enjoy, we did.

A treasure on the UMich campus. Not to be missed. Permanent collections and special exhibits (I saw "Exercising the Eye" and "See Through") were outstanding. Collection of mid-century modern furniture was welcome surprise. Beautiful building, well-designed spaces.

I was a little underwhelmed by UMMA. I've walked by the beautiful old building many, many times and finally checked it out. I guess the majesty of the historic original building had me expecting more. There are some nice pieces for sure...but I had high...More

There are some beautiful pieces from Tiffany. There are solo pieces from Calder, Picasso and other historical figures. One intriguing piece is from a "Book of Hours." The page is small and double sided. These books were a best seller in Medieval times for the...More

One of the best things about this collection is the beautiful building it is housed in on the downtown Ann Arbor campus. For a (voluntary) donation you can spend an hour, or maybe two, viewing the permanent collection comprising European and Asian art, and then...More

No, sorry. The museum uses Mondays, as most do, to clean the galleries and shift art.
