The small galleries on multiple levels hold some significant pieces. The two di Suvero pieces outside the main entrance prepares you for the diverse collection inside. There are works from early European to Asian to African to contemporary American. All are small collections but significant, none the less. Some of the artists represented include: Whistler, Pissaro, Gericault, Daumier, Delacroix, Ernst,... More

I am not an art enthusiasts, but I really enjoyed my visit to this museum. The museum was not crowded at all, so I was able spend as much time as I wanted looking at each piece of art. This is definitely a must see when visiting Ann Arbor.

I was totally amazed at all this museum had to offer. I wish I had more time. I could have spent an entire day here. I spent 4 years at U of M, and never visited the museum, awesome. Plan on some time, you will be swept away by the variety of art exhibited.

We had a very limited amount of time here because of a tight schedule. I wish that we had had more time as I really enjoyed what I saw. I spent most of the time with the Tiffany collection on the second floor. That was excellent. There is no admission fee so you have the luxury of stopping by even... More

This palce was great for a walk with my 13 you son. The Tiffany section was a highlight as well as some of the fantastic artwork in the main building.

I was pleasantly surprised by the museum. They have a good variety of styles of art. They have a special photography exhibit about Elizabeth Taylor that is interesting. The museum is free so you can spend as little or as much time as you like wandering the small collection. There are not many visitors in June so it feels like... More

This museum is small but the breadth of its exhibits is impressive. I especially like the Asian art on display. The building in which the museum is housed is lovely, too. One disappointment: the cafe as originally planned has not materialized.

While not on the level and scale of the Detroit Institute of Arts, the University of Michigan's Museum of Art is definitely worth a visit. The museum has a surprisingly varied collection that spans many eras and cultures, including American, European, Asian, African and Middle Eastern. The types of art objects on display is also quite varied. Paintings, sculptures, furniture,... More

This is a wonderful place to hang out and admire their beautiful collection. Its quite large for a small town museum, and their stuff is great, nicely displayed.

Loved the Tiffany collection that came from a dismantled NYC mansion. I didn't realize Tiffany did so much more than stained glass and lamp shades. He was commissioned to do all parts of this NYC house. You can see b&w photos of the interior. Must have been amazing to see in the actual house, the entire thing looked like a... More
