As other reviewers have said, this is one of the most amazing university art museums. (I wouldn't call it "small", though, unless you're comparing it to the largest museums in the biggest cities.) I especially enjoyed the huge frescoes by Diego Rivera. A helpful docent...More

This is a genuinely superb museum on the campus of the University of Michigan. While it regularly hosts exhibitions, reason enough to go is the permanent 20th century collection, spanning several rooms. Admission is free, with a $10 suggested donation.

I can't remember every part of it, but I highly recommend at least one visit if you live in Ann Arbor. If you are visiting, come see a great small museum of art. There is a lot of carefully assembled art that is breath taking....More

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