  • Incredible place to explore and learn a wide variety of things. The mineral specimen collection is amazing. You can always find something new as it seems they get new exhibits frequently!
  • Cranbrook is always amazing. They have great planetarium shows and so many things to look at and read about. They recently turned the basement into almost entirely a bat exhibit which you have to pay extra for.
  • Great hands-on interactive exhibits. Very kid-friendly. Very informative for kids and adults. I'm 34 and I learned a ton!!!
  • Okay so yeah there were cool rocks but they have to improve the planetaurim shows incredibly cheesy and it was very small compared to another muesum. It was intended for younger audiences there wasnt as much as things to do. The price is pretty high for the short museum. Only thing thats worth it is the traveling exhibit which they close way too early. I wouldnt pay 13 to go back again i thought there would be more it was just building up to the really good stuff. That never came to be. A lot of the interactive stuff wasnt working. Its good if you want to get away for 2 hours but not a day trip
  • Beautiful campus, helpful staff. Great place to visit. I recommend the mineral collection.
