We came to the art museum on a hot day and enjoyed the variety of modern art! Some of the pieces were really unusual, but that was the point of the current collection- keep an eye out for the elephant in the room!

The story behind the museum is remarkable and the personal collection of Mr and Mrs Broad is most interesting. Well worth a visit. Parking close to campus is very difficult.

Interesting but very odd art. Crickets in a tent. What appears to be a bar of soap but is in fact fat sucked out of a Italian Prime Minister. Talking water spigits. Did love the hanging elephant.

The outside architecture is the most impressive part of the entire museum. The inside is fairly small, and honestly, kind of underwhelming. There are a few great exhibits (the elephant and the bug tent), but most aren't all that awe-inspiring. It's a great place to...More

Wonderful modern art museum with a terrific and unusual design. Nicely landscaped and a great place to visit. A great asset to the campus at MSU.

One of the best small art museums in the country. Striking Zaha Hadid-designed structure surrounds an innovative space for varying installations. Excellent use of daylight. Well-trained and courteous staff and docents. Worth a trip in itself.

It is free. There is a donation box for if you would like to make a contribution, but they don't force you to make a contribution. Being a student with no money - I didn't.
