Saarinen House

ABOUT THE TOUR
Join Cranbrook Center for Collections and Research as we take you inside three remarkable homes from across the twentieth century. There’s no tour quite like it, with a look into the distinct visions for American life from three internationally significant architects: Albert Kahn, Eliel Saarinen, and Frank Lloyd Wright. Your expert guide will take you through the architecture and innovations of each home, while also sharing the stories of the families who built and lived in these special places. Each house maintains unique and rich collections of decorative and fine art, and over the course of this tour, you will learn about the Arts and Crafts Movement and how its legacy lived on at Cranbrook well into the twentieth century.
