    This place is electric and one of the top, if not the best stadium to watch college football in the US. Great place to visit and obtain lifetime memories.

    Drove around this beautiful campus and admired how the university is such a part of the city. The buildings are in keeping with the surroundings . There was some construction going on at the stadium but still got to see the exterior.

    The collections of the museum are centered on works from ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. Quality of the pieces is excellent... many of the works on view are equal to pieces at much larger institutions. Though the collection is concise, it is superbly curated, offering a glimpse at ancient cultures through the objects that people used in everyday life. Wonderful museum, free of charge, that should not be missed. Very close to the exceptional University of Michigan Art Museum.

    This tour by James Bardwell was an outstanding example of putting his scientific work out to the public to see, understand and marvel at the wonder in the sea that we hear about bur rarely are able to see. This tour was worth the trip the museum by itself but overall the natural science museum is exciting and informative as well as fun.

    Excellent collection housed in beautiful building constructed next to an older building Wayfinding is a bit difficult as you work your way through the collections. Enjoyed the superb exhibit exploring the legacies of slavery. The permanent collection is wide-ranging and especially strong in modernism and contemporary art.

    Whenever I visited Ann Arbor, I go there. It is so beautiful and tranquil. Its atmosphere reminds us of Oxford. The other gem is its library. You should visit.

    We wandered around here after a very long day of driving on our family road trip from Madison, Wisconsin to Niagara Falls. There’s a great selection of different restaurants, many with outdoor seating. Our girls ( age 7) enjoyed looking around in all the stores. My only complaints are that it’s difficult to find a public bathroom, and the parking ramp was a bit confusing and challenging to navigate. I would suggest going when you have a lot of energy and bringing your own water bottle with if it’s hot out.

    Last time we were there, we spent about 4-5 hours there, even though the conservatories were closed. We walked about 5 miles around some of the trails and the outdoor gardens. There's a kid's garden, a few large central gardens, a bonsai garden, and lots of trails outside. There's also a picnic area. Inside there are I believe 3 conservatories. We hope to go back this weekend to see those and to take another trail walk. It's only $5 to park for the whole day. Obviously what plants are in bloom are going to depend on the time of year, but they have a lot of plants and flowers that bloom all spring and summer long. It's a beautiful place. If you don't intend to use the trails, it probably would only take 1-2 hours walking around the main "attractions" if you take your time.

    What an amazing experience for my grandson- he loved ever minute of his visit and then wanted to go back to his favorite “experiments” . The water jets and the air propulsion bottle rockets were his favorites! Bought a year long pass as I know we will go back soon!

    If you’re in Ann Arbor you’re likely a student, faculty or tourist I think. If you’re in Kerrytown you’re going to the market or Zingerman’s most likely but there is heaps of things to do. Check it out. And go to Zingermans for lunch

    We are a family who loves animals. We drove an hour to get here and it did not disappoint! Although small, we spent two hours here and watched two shows. The one at 2 pm featured a skunk, beaded lizard and vulture. The show at 3 featured a coyote. They will be featuring animals from Australia next month so we want to visit during Spring Break.

    The man who gave the talks was very interesting and gave very useful facts about the animals. We will definitely be back!

    Or run or bike or roller blade. The loop is 3 miles and there are interior paths to go off on. They have cross country skiing trails also in the winter.
