Small museum but they had really cool shows when we visited. The property is beautiful and the quality of the show was top notch. If you get a chance to see the Nick Cave show that is currently going on, it's well worth it.

Cranbrook Art Museum is a part of the Cranbrook Educational Community, who's luminary have included Eliel & Eero Saarinen, Carl Milles, Harry Bertoia, Charles & Ray Eames, Florence Knoll, Ed Fella and Daniel Libeskind. The entry fee for the Art Museum also included the Saarinen House Tour and I would advise coming on the days that those tours are conducted.... More

Situated on a beautiful piece of land sits this magnificent complex. While we were there, some people were just sitting and enjoying the scene-others were walking/jogging. A wedding party was taking photos and some like us were there to visit the museum. There were 2 shows on view-both extremely well done . There is no restaurant /cafe on site .

We travelled to the Cranbrook Art Museum on a beautiful day in June. As it looked like rain we decided to walk through the grounds of the Cranbrook House first. They were beautiful. The Booths, the original owners started this whole complex of buildings and art services for people which has grown to include schools, museums and other art services... More

Amazing contemporary art, don't miss it. While there, walk around the grounds and try to organize a visit to the Cranbrook House.

Worth seeing while you're at Cranbrook. Interesting permanent and temporary exhibits make it worth seeing.

The art museum is located along a nice drive within the campus. The yards & surrounding area, although covered in snow during my visit, were still lovely. The exhibit area was nicely laid out, and the exhibit itself in this instance (Andy Warhol's career-spanning vinyl album cover art) was well researched and presented. Was glad I paid it a visit,...
