Very small but nice.

It is a nice stop if you are in the area but not worth driving very far for as it doesn't take long to go through.

Gorgeous museum with a great selection of art that is constantly changing. I went during an open house so there was food and drinks, plus I got to talk with the student artists, that was fun!

Free admission and a variety of work! Student art shows are on display 2 times a year as well as a children's art show.

We visited on a Sunday and not many visitors so we leisurely strolled the museum. We saw some of the regular collection and a temporary collection. This was a nice hour of piece and quiet. The art is different and varied. We enjoy Art and found this fun.

This university run museum is wonderful. Consistently changing exhibits make it more of a gallery, but that's fine. The annual "North of the 45th" show draws talent from near and far, and always displays some incredible talent. Occasionally a music venue as well, it's been host to some breathtaking performances.

For a small town such as Marquette, the DeVos offers a wide variety of programing and a fantastic array of different art opportunities. I would have assumed there were at least a dozen people behind the scenes making this place run. For such a limited staff they do fantastic work. Definitely a sparkling gem for the Marquette community.

We recently visited to see the exhibit of artists from North of the 45th Parallel. A juried show, it had some outstanding art from people from Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. The surprise was also viewing artwork from the permanent collection including a series of Hiroshige woodblock prints from Japan.

To be truthful, I initially considered giving a rating of 2/5. But some of my disappointment may have been tied to poor timing. When I visited, the main exhibit was artwork from the area school children. And while some of the children are very talented, and the quilt made of self-portaits of the students (and portraits of teaching/school staff), I... More

I don't mean to give this museum a poor rating but, honestly, there was not much on display. We were told that they only display a small portion of there permanent collection at any one time. (I thought that a permanent collection was always on display?) Again, do not mean to complain--admission is free, it is on the contained campus... More

This museum features interesting contemporary architecture. Some of the contemporary exhibits are too trendy but the permanent collection is quite good for a museum of its' size.
