We spent an enjoyable 1.5 hours touring the museum which offers a very diverse collection of paintings, sculptures and furniture. The Tiffany items were really nice, as were the Eames chairs. I did not completely relate to the contemporary art, but that is my personnal preference. Worht the time if you want to spend 1.5 hours.

Was pleasantly surprised by the quality & calibre of this art museum. Lot of variety and styles, excellent exhibit feature works from the collections of UM grads, and no admission charge -- suggested donation are posted. Worth spending a few hours if you are in Ann Arbor.

Great museum with a wonderful variety of artists, regions, styles, mediums and periods. May be a little boring for smaller children as there are no hands on or children geared exhibits, just a well designed gallery. Suggested donation for admission is currently $10 per person and is matched by a donor. The jewelry and artwork for sale in the gift... More

Nice little art museum on the University of Michigan campus. Not too big or ostentatious, and a good place to spend a couple of hours. A good collection of American and European art (paintings, sculpture, and mixed media, etc.). Great collection of Asian art as well. It's technically free, with a "suggested" donation of $10.

This is a wonderful museum, which usually has interesting temporary shows, as well as a good permanent collection. We very much enjoyed the exhibit of Japanese wood block prints, and, as always, liked the Havemayer collection of Tiffany glass.

We were only able to spend a few hours at the museum, but were keen on seeing the Kabuki and African art rotating exhibits. Only disappointment was our short timeframe at the museum.
