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

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

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