“Beautiful surroundings and wonderful art.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

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

“Beautiful and immaculate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Legendary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

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.

“Nice Experience in the Suburbs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

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 art chairs and try them for themselves. Nice touch. I also liked the exhibit downstairs featuring the local works of Cranbrook grads.
