This is a wonderful science museum and I appreciate the variety and care they have taken in displaying the artifacts. The taxidermy animals were nice as well as the exhibits on earth science and astronomy. This museum also has after dark events for seeing bats, stars or other things. They also have classes and camps available. Even though I haven't... More

All four of our grandchildren, two boys and two girls, ages 2 to 5 have really enjoyed their visit to the science center. Something for everyone from the special exhibits to hands on learning stations. Make sure to schedule time for the planetarium. Proof they had fun...they keep asking to go back.

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.

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
