A fairly small art museum, but seems remarkably good for a college campus. Somewhat modern in focus, although nothing inside is nearly as avant garde as the facade. There is also quite a bit of emphasis on pottery. Nothing here made a lasting impact on...More

Most of the developed world only showcases modern art, this museum is one among them. I spend a day at the Museum for Conference. A good river view, comes complementary.

There were some interesting works here. We had seen the pots exhibit advertised and were disappointed that it was not open yet.

Hadn't been here in a couple of years and mostly always went just for the Pedicott Apts. which is such fun.But this time all the installations were equally interesting and it's a stunning museum, holding it's own with the Walker and MIA.

Was visiting for the Beautiful brain exhibition, but enjoyed the rest very much as well. Extra bonus: free admission, donations encouraged.

The museum is on the UofM campus and has a good set of exhibits, many periodically changing. Architecturally it is an interesting building and both the external view and the art inside are worth the investment of some time. Admission is free, though there is...More
