Life on Earth Exhibit at Cranbrook

The only constant is change, someone once said – and there's plenty of that to explore in Life on Earth, a special exhibit opening Oct. 13, 2011 at the Cranbrook Institute of Science in Bloomfield Hills. From rare fossils to big beasts, it traces creatures through Earth's five (wowza!) major mass extinctions through a total 3.4 million years of evolution, showing why diversity is key to humanity.

Specimens from Cranbrook and other sources cover all of the major groups of plants and animals. There's a Bengal tiger, white rhino, lion, baboon, monkeys and grizzly bear – plus exotic birds, crocs and snakes, marine life, spiders, insects and a stunning collection of butterflies and mollusk shells.

This exhibit runs till Sept. 2, 2012. It's open daily except Mondays and major holidays. Hours are as follows:

  • Tuesday-Saturday: 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
  • Friday: 10 a.m.-10 p.m.
  • Sunday: Noon-4 p.m.

Admission is $12.50 per adult, $9.50 per child ages 2-12 and free for kids under 2.
