Field trips to Cranbrook Institute of Science offer your Scouts the opportunity to work with museum educators and scientists who are active in their fields and the chance to interact with a unique, world-class collection of objects and artifacts. Our experts work with your group to educate Scouts about a variety of scientific topics through interactive workshops and hands-on activities. Our goal is to supply Scouts with a spark of curiosity and wonder about their natural world, and the majesty of scientific knowledge. Workshop fees include the cost of general admission. Scouts are encouraged to come early, or stay late, to visit the Institute during regular museum hours.
