“Great university art museum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Not only is the art inside of the museum incredible, so too is the building that houses them. This museum is located in the middle of the University's central campus...the buildings are absolutely gorgeous. The collection inside of this museum is extensive and impressive. In particular, the Asian art is especially beautiful. There are also some wonderful contemporary pieces. And free admission (with a suggested donation). Not to be missed if you have some extra time to waste in Ann Arbor.

“Small but with several notable pieces”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I attended a reception for the Shangri La exhibit and got a chance to see the renovated museum space. It's not a major museum but it's a worthwhile visit - check out the Tiffany glass! Wow.

“Islamic Art Exhibit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

When you walk in the place it feels like a classic museum. Tall ceilings, tiled floors, huge staircase and large windows. I was a bit disappointed in the Islamic Exhibit. It was a collection of one person. I thought it was more of a representation of Islamic Art, but it was this person's taste represented.
She had very good taste and her Art was from her travels around the world. But, it wasn't what I expected.
I'll definitely be back for other exhibits, though. It's an amazing place.
