Over the course of a year, Cranbrook Institute of Science hosts, partakes in, or sponsors an eclectic array of programs and events.

There are seasonal events that are centered around holidays or special event days like Halloween and Thanksgiving as well as our regular slate of inspiring and educational planetarium programs. Cranbrook Institute of Science also has great programs and opportunities for Scouts and for those interested in an educational and fun summer camp experience.

If you have young children, you might also be interested in the Family Discovery Center. And don't forget our thought-provoking lectures and wonderful members-only events!
