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.

We attended a reception from school and visited the museum as well. Parking was full and we had to go a little far but it was worth to see all around. The scluptures outside were elegent and beautiful .I enjoyed the whole evening.

Spectacular grounds with sculpture, fountains, gardens, architecture spotlessly maintained. I think they comb the lawn. Small art museum with michigan oriented works. Loved the exhibit of lafayette park, my former residence. Extremely worth a visit. Place screams of class and priviledge, but the affluence is put to a purpose for all to appreciate.

Cranbrook is an American treasure, an incubator for some of the most amazing creativity in a wide variety of mediums. There really is no other Art Museum with a residential on site Masters academy like it in the USA.

The current exhibit relates to classic/modern Michigan-made furnishings that are still mainstream in homes and offices throughout the country (such as Eames chairs). It takes an hour or so to view the exhibits. As museums are typically "do not touch", the thoughtful designers who put this exhibit together have one room at the end where guests can sit in the...
