“Michigan Art Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

This university art museum is a treasure in our city. The docents and curators do a great job in creating and explaining exhibits. One can easily wander through the museum for hours admiring the great art, but I recommend looking in the odd places (inside small rooms) for placards about the building and memorials to UM students who served this country in war times.

“OMG”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

Was an excellent visit. We expected an 1-2 hour tour - ended up all day! Free to get in and it had dozens of exhibits. It's easy to get loose time in this place. Allot of varied artworks/exhibits - It is worth the time - parking can be a hassle so prepare.

A great stop on campus, beautiful works of art. The glass exhibits are gorgeous, and we were amazed by how quiet it was.

“Great place to spend a free hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

Had a pretty good collection of art. Quite a few names I remember from my Art History classes. At the time, there was an extremely odd "art" movie that played, it played two separate scenes on 2 screens. I will go again next time I'm in Ann Arbor, as the works will probably have changed. It is a free attraction

“Gracious and lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

I hope this treasure on campus is not overlooked. I try to make a quiet visit every time I am in Ann Arbor. I am never disappointed by the quality if the exhibitions. I learn something new every time.
