  • Great place to start from if you are interested in doing some easy hiking. We walked 6 miles according to the app we were using. Cranbrook schools have been there my decade here in Oakland County, MI. I never knew the hike around the grounds was so amazing and filled with so many hidden treasures such as the Greek ceremonial areas and the ponds near the Cathedral. There are grecian sculptures dating a century back redone to represent many biblical stories. The hike was great with few inclines for those who like an easier pace and hike but there are also places to get some extra walking and exercise in as well.
  • A lovely place for an outing. They have a variety of exhibits ranging from their extensive rocks and minerals collection to the natural selection exhibit to the steam chamber. There are planetarium shows throughout the week that are enjoyable and informative. I'd definitely recommend coming on the Friday nights when the observatory is open and running, as it's definitely a treat. The travelling exhibition at the moment is Chocolate, although I haven't been able to visit it yet. They also have a reflections cafe with pretty quality food. Good place to bring children, a friend, a date, or just yourself.
  • The museum itself is nice. But many of the exhibits were closed or non operational. I don't feel that it was worth the price I paid for My family to attend. But the grounds are beautiful gorgeous setting.
  • This place is amazing! There are trails to walk and so many things to see. Great for quiet time or pictures of all sorts. I can't wait until spring.
  • Very nice education place for children! Many wonderful and creative activities planned, and good shows and planetarium presentations.
