A jewel-box of a museum, tucked into a corner of the magnificent grounds of the Starr Commonwealth just west of Albion, Michigan. Dedicated in 1956 the Norman style building was designed by Detroit architect Marcus Burrowes and features multiple galleries designed to house the impressive collection of Starr founder Floyd Starr. Sculpture by Donatello, Milles, Manship and Montana and paintings by Wyeth, Hurd, Foster, Symons and others are further enhanced by Stained glass and an eclectic collection of items of interest to younger viewers. A basement gallery features many articles of Southwest and Native-American derivation. Nearby, the original structure first occupied by Floyd Starr and named Gladsome Cottage is also available for viewing. Furnished much as it was in the early twentieth century it is an amalgam of victorian furnishings and important paintings. The home played host to many famous celebrity guests and overlooks a 40 acre lake and manicured grounds. Well worth a side trip!
