A fantastic visual learning experience for children, teen and adults. Worth the visit. We had a tour guide that answered all of our questions and explained each exhibit and or display. Cranbrook is known for its excellence in education and rightfully so considering a $25,000...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.

We are a relatively new family in town. Bought membership to enjoy bats and planetarium year round. Also excited to use reciprocal membership at Chicago museums! Layout is a bit confusing but looking forward to visiting when it warms up and grounds come to life.

Cranbrook is just a lovely place to visit. Spent a great afternoon at the science center with a friend and plan to return to check out the art museum. A nice place to spend an afternoon either with friends or alone.

A nice museum close to home. The museum has many interactive exhibits to keep your kids engaged. For those on a budget, one Friday evening a month has free admission (check their web site for details). Special exhibits cost extra but are usually interesting.

I met a friend here with our 2nd graders and it was just okay. Granted, we didn't get to see the Native American section (boys were done by this time), but even so... Perhaps I just didn't know what to expect. The boys enjoyed the...More
