They have a wonderful collection - from outside the building looks small but inside there's quite a variety. Additionally the visiting exhibitions are great - just saw the Islamic Art one by DDFIA and it was great!

Currently the museum has a fascinating, small exhibit of Doris Duke's incredible Shangra la home with architectural drawings, photos, and artifacts from her Middle East collection..all coupled with works by Middle East artists in residence.

I went with a friend, and was excited to see how much history was given along with the art exhibited. We especially liked the Islamic art collection and the Asian exhibit. We couldn't stay long (be sure to bring change for the meter, or pick one that takes a card!) and didn't get to see everything, but enjoyed the parts we did see immensely.

The UM art museum is a wonderful small museum to spend an afternoon. They have a nice collection, especially the Asian art and their glass and pottery collection. The new addition has been very well utilized as the curators hung and placed art with knowledge of how the art is best viewed by the general public, not just a specialist. Go across the street to the Kelsey Archaeology Museum after.

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.
