COVID-19 Reopening Update

We are so grateful for this community. The response we’ve received from all of you as we announced our reopening day has been incredible.

Thank you for your interest in registering for our upcoming February Free First Friday. Due to the popularity of this event, all time slots for Friday, February 5, 2021 are SOLD OUT.

We are currently taking reservations for Wednesday – Sunday visits.

Your health and safety is of the utmost importance to the Institute of Science. All guests aged three and older will be required to wear a face covering for the duration of their visit. Visitors will be asked to maintain six-feet of social distance between themselves and other guests, and hand sanitizing stations will be placed at visitor entrances and high-contact areas.

Learn about the natural world around you!

Discover the wonder of the natural world and develop a better understanding of the ways in which science impacts our lives each day at Cranbrook Institute of Science.

Interactive exhibits, a world-class collection of objects and artifacts, special events, a planetarium and observatory, lecture and educational programs and changing exhibitions offer something for every member of the family. Stand beneath a T.rex, feel a mastodon’s fur, or touch a meteorite.
