A cultural playground among a sea of trees and shrubbery.. In Short This nonprofit educational community includes the Cranbrook Art Museum and the Cranbrook Institute of Science. A long pond surrounded by thick green grass and colorful natural scenery flows from attractive sculptures to Cranbrook Road. Cranbrook's various schools offer classes for students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, and the area's esteemed Academy of Art grants masters degrees in fine arts and architecture.
My husband took me to Cranbrook on our first date. We brought a blanket and laid down under a tree. The surroundings, the smell of the flowers...it was very romantic. Cranbrook became a favorite place for us to relax on a sunny afternoon. We had our wedding photos taken here so that we can cherish the memories forever.
The Cranbrook grounds are exceptionally beautiful and well manicured. The campus has plenty of area to stroll through or bike. Also, there is plenty to do at Cranbrook from enjoying the lush gardens that surround the main mansion (Cranbrook House), to perusing the art museum, to scoping out the Science center and taking in a laser show.
