Cranbrook Art Museum

Cranbrook Art Museum is situated on a lush, 319-acre campus of world-renowned architecture, sculpture, and gardens. Described by architecture critic Wolf von Eckardt as “the most enchanted and enchanting setting in America,” in 1989 it was designated a National Historic Landmark. The Art Museum features year-round, changing exhibitions of modern and contemporary art and design, as well as guided tours of the Collections Wing, showcasing our collection of nearly 6,000 artworks.

Founded by Detroit philanthropists George Gough Booth and Ellen Scripps Booth in 1904, Cranbrook’s 319-acre campus features the work of world-renowned architects such as Eliel Saarinen, Albert Kahn, Steven Holl, Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, Rafael Moneo, Peter Rose, and sculptors Carl Milles, Marshall Fredericks and others. Critics have called Cranbrook “the most enchanted and enchanting setting in America” and in 1989, it was designated a National Historic Landmark.

On January 19, 1904, Detroit newspaper publisher and philanthropist George Gough Booth (1864–1949) and his wife, Ellen Scripps Booth (1863–1948), purchased 175 acres in rural Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, setting into motion a vision that ultimately transformed their vacation property into one of the nation’s foremost educational communities. At the heart of what is now Cranbrook Educational Community stands its Art Museum, which is among the first contemporary art museums in America.
