“Interesting Museum, Beautiful Campus”

Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum
Ranked #3 of 27 things to do in Saginaw
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Based on Tripadvisor reviews, I wanted to stop in to the museum on way to Mackinaw City. What was initially intended as a way to spend a few hours on the way northward through Michigan became one of the highlights of our trip.

Outside the museum are many of the sculptures. Inside are numerous plaster models used in creating finished sculptures, as well as items from Fredericks studio arranged as he worked back in the day.

Saginaw Valley State University grounds are quite beautiful as well. A peaceful setting.

Wonderful pieces of work inside and out at the campus of the University- really enjoyed looking at and taking pictures of them! Not especially keen on sculpture usually but these were amazing and it is well worth the trip to see them.

My group stopped here during a convention and I'm so glad they did. I had absolutely no idea this museum even existed. The saddest part is that I didn't have enough time to take everything in. Although the museum is small there is so much information to read about pertaining to each sculpture. The ambiance in the museum is very calming and the lighting is phenomenal. If you have an hour or two to spare while you are in the area I highly recommend this museum!

I know people who have lived in Saginaw their whole lives and have never visited the museum. It is truly something to be proud of. Located on the lovely campus of Saginaw Valley State University, the museum houses a vast collection of Fredericks sculptures. Fans of The Cross in the Woods in Indian River should see the exhibit.

Stopped here to break up drive to Mackinac Island but this would be a destination in itself. Small museum on a college campus with wonderful scuptures inside and out, with fascinating signs to read. There's also a depiction of the artists studio with signage and videos that clearly explain the process. And its free. Absolutely loved it!
