  • A great spot to visit. Not a large museum but a good one with roaring exhibits. The rotating exhibits are not always worth the extra fee but can be if the content interests you. Beautiful campus at Cr...  more »

  • A nice exhibit of replicas. Egypt is no longer loaning most of their artifacts so replicas have been constructed for traveling exhibits. All pieces can be seen in about two hours.  more »

  • Great exhibits today! Really enjoyed the field trip with my daughter's class. I haven't been in a while, so I will be back in the summer to check out the rest of the great stuff here. Could have done without the explanation of the term "piss poor" to the third graders. Just an explanation that buckskin is softened with urine would have been sufficient. Using that kind of language in an educational setting was not appropriate.
  • Located in the beautiful campus of the Cranbrook School, the Institute of Science is a wonderful gem. The Institute is always clean, and the staff/volunteers are always friendly. The Institute is just the right size and has traveling exhibits in the basement. In addition to the regular exhibits, there is a planetarium and an observatory. I have attended some of the special programs, and they are very well organized.
  • This place is great, inside and out. The grounds are gorgeous; the campus is made up of old stone buildings and the Institute itself is pristine. I have great memories of coming here for field trips for school, and I found it even more interesting as an adult. The big wooly mammoth will always be my favorite part. For a museum gift shop, they actually sell some nice stuff. I like that there's a big variety of educational toys.
  • beautiful place. Just remember that if it's already in the case, they don't like you to "rediscover" it with a baseball bat.
  • It's a very interesting place to visit if science is your thing. If it's not, still very cool. But the cost is to much and if you are not coming alone it adds up very quickly.
