Beautiful gardens and lakes. Very nice art museum. Great art shows. In addition, there is a science museum. I would recommend to anybody that wants to enjoy the surrending area of Birmingham, Michigan with friends and family

Beautiful, serene, artfully designed gardens and greenhouse. As with the rest of the Cranbrook campus, the aesthetics are flawless. A perfect place to meditate and take in the aroma and beauty of the gardens.

We were directed here by my wife's cousin. We wandered around the grounds looking at things, all of which were closed as we were there on a day that they were closed. The grounds are beautiful and the house was very impressive.

The guided tours of the house give a fascinating insight into the world in which Cranbrook was built, with many details following the Arts and Crafts style of house yet with something uniquely American too. The plaster ceilings, the lovely library, and the wonderful tapestries...More
