The museum isn't large, so you should be able to see all of it while taking your time and be out of there in under an hour and a half. I'd recommend walking the grounds and also checking out the mansion and gardens (when in season) while you're there.

small but impressive.

Small museum - expect to spend 3 hours at most, and that would require lingering over every exhibit. Not much for kids under 12yo. Beautiful property, it is free to walk around. I recommend attending during warmer months - roam the grounds and enjoy the sculptures and gardens.

You may also want to plan time for the science museum nearby, separate admission.

Be sure to allow time for all of the exhibits. We went there for the Warhol exhibit but enjoyed the other exhibits as well.

Find an exhibition that interests you. The Warhol album art exhibit was very nicely done and included listening opportunities.

The Museum was nice! Staff was extremely informative and friendly. The Cranbrook grounds are absolutely beautiful. The only thing I would recommend is going on a warmer day if you're coming from away to fully enjoy the grounds in addition to museum

From Our Editors

Cranbrook Art Museum opened its current Eliel Saarinen-designed building in 1942. Today, its collection features original exhibitions and educational programming on modern and contemporary architecture, art, crafts, and design. A recent $22 million renovation added a Collections Wing, making their rich collection accessible to all visitors.

  • Permanent mainstay: Tours of the museum's Collections Wing, with more than 6,000 items by artists such as Eames, Knoll, and Saarinen, are all housed in a vault designed to make the collection visible and accessible.

  • Don't miss: The curator's talks give more in-depth detail about current exhibitions.

  • Hands-on experiments: In the outdoor sculpture treasure hunt, families seek up to 18 sculptures on the grounds, while learning more about the artists, other works, and which pieces make the best nesting areas for birds.

  • Future exhibitions: Laura Kalman: Coveted Objects; Theater of the Mind; The Cranbrook Hall of Wonders: Artworks, Objects, and Natural Curiosities; Iris Eichenberg: Bend; MR. MDWST - A REAL GOOD TIME by BEVERLY FRESH; and Alloyed Visions: The Jewelry of Harry Bertoia

  • The building: a meticulously restored structure designed in 1942 by Eliel Saarinen

  • While you?re in the neighborhood: Nearby on the Cranbrook campus is Saarinen House, the art deco masterwork of renowned architect Eliel Saarinen. The house served as his residence as Cranbrook Academy of Art's first president and has been restored with its original furnishings.

  • Foster the next generation of artists: at monthly Drop-In Art Sundays, where children explore the kids' gallery and create their own masterpiece inspired by featured artists
