This is such a great place to experience. Stop at the art museum and the science center. Walk around and enjoy the unbelievable and perfectly manicured grounds. They have beautiful ponds, fountains, and the buildings have stunning architecture with very special accents. Cranbrook is a must!

Most of the TA reviews were written by Michiganers, and local recommendations are worth heeding. Cranbrook is a multifaceted center for art, science and education. My favorites parts are the Art Museum and Saarinen House. The Art Museum has a fine collection and its exhibits are interesting. Saarinen House is beautiful, but you need to book a tour to see...

This place is very cute. While the exhibition was not my flavor the statutes outside were breath taking. I saw a few people taking family photos on the grounds. It is a stunning backdrop.

The Museum was closed to install a new exhibit, but that's not why I came to Bloomfield Hills. I was most interested in the house that Eliel Saarinen built, that Loja Saarinen helped furnish, and where Eero Saarinen grew up. The Saarinen House is only open for a few guided tours to accommodate a dozen or so. Our docent (who... More

We love this museum. Always interesting exhibits. Small enough so kids don't get bored. We often take our grand kids for a visit. The grounds are gorgeous, and all in bloom on a summer day.

This museum is sometimes neglected by the locals, but it should not be ignored. They do an excellent job of showcasing meaningful exhibitions, presented in great formats. This museum is only five minutes from my house, and we try to get there at least every couple of months. We have seen some amazing exhibits and have learned so much. Definitely... More

Visit when an exhibit sounds relevant to you. Have gone about every 18 months for the past 10 years. Quality of presentation has been very good. Helpful attendants. And the surrounding outside area has fascinated me for many years.

I took my 5 elementary age children & it held their attention for all of 30 minutes. I would not recommend a year pass if you are thinking that it will be used more than 1 time.

The grounds are beautiful, especially in the spring and summer. There's art to enjoy inside and outside of the museum.
