Statement of Purpose:

The University of Michigan Museum of Art seeks to transform individual and civic life by promoting the discovery, contemplation, and enjoyment of the art of our world.

The museum houses a rich permanent collection with representative holdings from both the Western and Asian traditions.

Of special note are its collections of Chinese and Japanese paintings and Old Master and contemporary prints.

Art from the Middle Ages to present, Asian art from 5,000 BC, African, Oceanic, South and Native American art.


The Museum maintains a distinguished collection of nearly 14,000 paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, ceramics, and mixed-media works from around the world. With a full complement of traveling exhibitions and interpretive events and activities, the U-M Museum of Art is regarded as one of the finest university art museums in the country. Situated in the heart of the University of Michigan's vibrant and architecturally stimulting Main Campus, the Museum is a favorite of students, scholars, families and out-of-town visitors who appreciate both its comprehensive collection and its manageable size. The Museum can be easily explored in an afternoon. Cafes and restaurants are just steps away. Admission is always free (though a $5 donation is appreciated). The Museum's popular Japanese tea ceremony is held on the fourth Sunday of every month at 3 pm in the Japanese Gallery. A $3 donation is suggested.


From Italian Renaissance panel paintings and Han Dynasty tomb figures to eighteenth-century textiles and contemporary photography, the Museum's collection is notable for both its range and quality.
