A arts-oriented granddaughter was visiting with us from Philly so we took her to our neighborhood art museum on the Cranbrook campus. We were quite impressed with the range of creative works that designer Girard (I forget his first name) had created --beautiful stuff!

When you visit Cranbrook it's not just the museum. It's the grounds, fountains, science museum, and the Saarinen architecture. Alexander Girard and his designs are currently on exhibit.

The Cranbrook Art Museum is beautiful well worth the time to go and see if you are visiting Michigan and are in the Birmingham/Bloomfield Area during your visit. The are is just gorgeous and the museum has lots to see.

The grounds around the museum were the highlight for me. Approaching the CAM, a lovely statue ringed fountain (although the statues seem to be expressing various emotions) led to the beginning of an extended walk that included everything from a long reflecting pool with numerous...More

Very nice museum had to attend with the kids as a school project. This Museum is a diamond in the rough. We stayed for hours and saw art by outside artist and Cranbrooks own artist.

It's a breath-taking building with a gorgeous, minimalist inside, but there's not a ton of art to be seen, unfortunately. The coolest exhibit is the static pottery display in the basement.More
