It began as a 174-acre (700,000 m) campus and is comprised of the Cranbrook Schools, the Cranbrook Academy of Art, the Cranbrook Museum of Art, the Cranbrook Institute of Science and the Cranbrook House and Gardens. The church is a separate entity from the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan.

The Cranbrook Science Institute includes a permanent collection of scientific artifacts, as well as annual temporary exhibitions.
