Add to Collections


Cranbrook Institute of Science currently counts more than 200,000 unique artifacts and specimens in its accessioned museum collections. In addition, the Institute maintains a teaching collection of items that can be viewed, touched and be used in experiments and hands-on discovery through its education programs both on and off-site.
From ancient pottery to out of this world meteorites; rare flora to prehistoric fossils - the collections of Cranbrook Institute of Science are filled with rare and wonderful items, many of them thanks to the generosity of donors who have contributed their natural history treasures to those from Cranbrook’s founders, George and Ellen Booth.
If you have items of scientific interest, consider contributing them to Cranbrook. You may earn valuable tax credit and will have the satisfaction of knowing that your cherished items will receive exceptional care while being shared with broad audiences for years to come.
