They have teaching science for all ages. Even an old fart like me, interesting things to see.

Any time we had company from out of town we go to Cranbrook Institute of Science and Henry Ford museum and Greenfield village. Good price for what you get.

Great museum with an extensive mineral collection and dinosaur exhibit. They also have special exhibitions. It is a midsize museum located in the beautiful, historic Cranbrook campus. I love the fact that it is not too crowded and usually have only Cranbrook students during the week so you can really take your time and linger.

I took my children to Cranbrook visiting the grounds, the Museum and the Science Institute and now I'm taking my grandchildren!! They have something for all ages and it's always a hit regardless of where we go. The grounds are fantastic as well!! Love Cranbrook!!

Great spot for children and adults. Much to see and do. Interactive. On the grounds of the Cranbrook Community so the drive through is beautiful and historic.

the younger girls, 8, love the telescope and the ability to see the moon she has a desire to learn more about the solar system. There were many great things to see and learn. We were walking out buying a family pass as we enjoyed it so much.

Went here for Mother's Day outing with my 8 year old son. We had an absolute blast going through the museum. Lots of hands on stuff to do. The Ice Age exhibit was awesome. Didn't get to do the Observatory or Planetarium, but it's on the list for next time! And the Bat Zone was very cool and educational. That... More

My kids are big science fans, but every child we know loves this place. They seem to really like bats here, and there is often some wonderful something that includes live bats. To each is own! The kids really go crazy for them.

My kids have been several times over the years because it is so close to home. The kids always like the hands on activities the best, which are limited here. There is a cool replica of a dinosaur skeleton. We usually spend about an hour and a half, never more than 2 hours here.
