University of Michigan Museums : Ann Arbor

It’s quite remarkable that a town as small as Ann Arbor would host so many wonderful museums, but I guess that having a world-class university in town – University of Michigan – tends to boost things up.

 

So, how many? Let me see if I can recall all those I’ve been to. There were the University of Michigan Museum of National History, the University of Michigan Museum of Art,  the University of Michigan Kelsey Museum of Archaeology that I actually did get the chance to visit, as well as the Ann Arbor Hands-On kiddy Museum I walked past a few times, and the Kempf House Museum which was closed when I tried to visit. But that’s not all, if you visit this page here then you can see there are many many more. That’s quite a long list for a town with just over a hundred thousand people.

 

Let’s visit those one by one.
