Went early to see the museum but most of it was closed getting ready for the November exhibit. However, the tour of the Smith's Frank Lloyd Wright home was outstanding. They shuttled us by bus to the home completely as it was when Mrs Smith...More

Cranbrook is best appreciated as an entire campus. None of the individual elements is best in class, but as a total experience, it is unforgettable.

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!
