Cranbrook House & Gardens is a historic facility preserved and maintained as closely as possible to its original design. As such, there are certain natural and artificial surface conditions, such as grass, wood chips, stones, stairs, steep slopes, and uneven terrain which can make walking and use of a wheelchair difficult. Assistance for guests using wheelchairs or walkers is recommended.
The tour will start promptly at 10:00am. Please arrive 15 to 20 minutes early to allow time to park and check in. This is an outdoor walking tour. Guests are encouraged to check the weather forecast and dress comfortably for the conditions.
