It's not a big sculpture museum----but what's there is very impressive. Mostly white plaster cast of his work around the country----his work is well worth the reasonable fee to get in

Another Saginaw gem

We visited on a whim since we know little about sculptures or sculptors. This museum is amazing -inside and out. Taught us a lot and its great to know Frederick's work can also be seen all over the US and the world. Detroit (ever hear of the Spirit of Detroit?), Meijer Gardens, Chicago.......

Wow! Never expected to see such extraordinary work in Saginaw
Jul 2019 • Couples
SVSU has a hidden treasure - The Marsh M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum. It has Fredericks' work room and so many of his extraordinary sculptures. The sculptures are in bronze and plaster and wood. They have detailed explanations of their origins and comments from Fredericks. The museum itself and its grounds beautifully house the works of art.

An unexpected gem in rural Michigan
May 2019 • Family
Fredericks was a sculptor who worked from the 1950s to the early 90s, mostly in bronze for large scale public pieces. The museum contains a large and representative number of original and restored plaster casts of his works from throughout a varied and apparently quite successful career. There are also a handful of his bronze castings in a small sculpture garden outdoors, and a replica of his workshop and a good explanation of how he worked to produce his pieces. All-in-all, a very satisfying experience. The museum is on the campus of Saginaw Valley State University and is co-located with a small art gallery that features traveling exhibitions.

Amazing Sculptures
Jul 2018 • Family
The grounds are beautiful. The talent Marshall Fredericks had is truly amazing! I enjoy walking through the museum over and over... There is much history about the man who sculpted. His wife was generous to have donated his art work to the museum.

Enjoyed walking through the beautiful garden and sculpture walk. Went inside to register my car and found even more sculptures and an area explain how the sculptures are made. Really enjoyed the special exhibit on JFK.

Sculpture museum
Mar 2019 • Family
Located inside the campus of SVSU, the museum has tons of sculptures from Marshall Fredericks. His art is not to be missed and while there last week, they also have an amazing display of many photographs of President Kennedy throughout his life. Many of the photos have never been seen. The best part is the museum is free! A donation would be appreciated.

The size and beauty of these sculptures, both indoors and out, make this an important place to visit for local residents and tourists alike. Bring your camera and be prepared to spend some time just taking in the brilliance of this huge and well shown collection.

Beautiful Sculptures-Lots of Construction
Sep 2018 • Business
The sculptures are beautiful! Enjoyed my visit. Parking can be tricky although they have a few designated spots for museum guests. Lots of construction going on at the time, which made it a bit tricky. Other than that, a nice place!
