    It's hard to pick just one item. There's so many wonderful interactive things to do here. Reasonable priced. Parking was a little bit annoying. Trying to find a spot or lot available. Heads up the parking machines only take a cc or change. No bills !!! I think my daughter and I enjoyed it much more than my granddaughter lol

    University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) is just lovely. What variety! The shop is fun and the exhibits are always tweaked with new bits. And moving the art about a bit.

    There were good new exhibits.

    And there’s someone at the door checking that people are well enough to visit, and everyone wearing masks.

    Well organized and always beautiful.

    Went on a weekend Staycation with daughter & granddaughter. Absolutely loved the Museum. However, the streets in and around UofM were blocked off so we drove around in circles, which gps did not recognize as being blocked off. That was very annoying and stressful. Took a lengthy time to find a parking place close to museum. Finally got the the museum, bonus ==== it's free at certain times, packed full of interesting art, pictures and a ton of history.

    If you like archeology but are not a fan of large museums this place is for you. It is the perfect size with a very nice collection of artifacts from around the Mediterranean.

    If I had a criticism it would be the museum did not include artifacts from other parts of the world (or at least were not exhibiting them when we visited).

  • Visited with my history lover son. For me, who finds history difficult to remember and connect stories, this library was just the perfect size. It provides interesting, sweet and short, important events during the political years of President Ford and his wife.
    The place displays archives to spark interest in specific subjects. Its Ann Arbor location reflects the love President Ford had for the University and his years as a student.

    Really nice venue for a casually formal wedding. I was a guest, not a participant, but it seemed to me everything went off very well.
    Nice rustic setting, plenty of interesting photo opps, including wedding pics with a goat.

    Admission to this museum is free & it's located next to the cafe in the School of Dentistry, which is convienent if you're in need of a snack or drink. As for the museum itself, it's very small. We went out of our way in bad weather to visit this museum & was disappointed to discover how small it was. There are a few neat things to see, such as how the dentist office has changed over the decades & there are small fun facts to learn. So if you happen to be around the school, I'd definitely stop in & have a look around. But going out of your way & risking getting lost, like we did, I wouldn't suggest it.

    House is located on busy division street between a parking lot and a park occupied by vagrants. It's hard to imagine that the area was one full of charming homes like this. Volunteers are very knowledgeable, but it's only open Sunday 1-4pm. On Wednesdays they often have lectures from 12-1pm (check the web site)

    Nice way to spend an hour on a Sunday aft

    Dropped in on a Friday evening exhibit that had a a good variety and reasonably priced mix of interesting pieces. We were were especially drawn to the innovative mix of paint and material insets, as well as new photographic techniques using electronic/computer printing. The staff was very welcoming, responsive to our questions, and provided follow-up details on how to contact the artists. Overall the gallery is a great example of how a smaller city gallery can become a community artistic hub.

    The Washtenaw County Historical Society has done a nice job of restoring this house and moving it to its current location. They have had many wonderful exhibits over the years. There is always something interesting to see there.

    I have gotten many display ideas from 16 Hands, and quite a fe2 arty cards, gifts, and bits of artistic hardware. I have a delightful “tree hugger” Light switchplate - a work of art! Memorable!
