Located close to Metroplolitain Detroit, The first thing you notice about the Flint Institute of Arts is it's colorful contemporary exterior, followed by it's spacious entrance. This was my first time visiting this museum and it left a good impression.The entry fee for the general collection was free, but a special exhibit required a small fee. The museum has a... More

The FIA has great exhibits, a very cool gift shop (expect gift shop pricing), a nice little cafe and a wide array of classes for ages infant to adult. My children are homeschooled and have benefited a great deal from the F.I.A. homeschooled program. My husband and I have 7 children ages 10 months to 14 and we like to... More

A surprisingly large museum in Flint. Phenomenal variety though not that much late 20th century or newer art (which is fine with me). Many less than famous artists but pictures were very good. Remarkable variety of African, Asian and Canadian First People stuff. No charge except for special exhibit. Better than art museums in Lansing/East Lansing though, or course, doesn't... More

Saturdays are free year round. Aside from the typical art museum exhibits, there is always a special exhibit.

great place to take family and friends. Exhibits are easy to negotiate and change frequently. The staff are very friendly and always helpful as well. Recently took some kids who had nothing positive to say about the community on a walking tour and they came away with a new appreciation for their city and I even overheard a few asking... More

Over the Christmas holiday, we visited the Flint Institute of art, primarily for our grandchildren to see the special video art exhibition. That exhibit is excellent. While there, we also toured the permanent collection and found it to be very well done. The staff is particularly friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed a light lunch while at the FIA.

Go in and look at the lobby. It is the interesting part of the building. The staff is stuck up, and not very friendly or welcoming. I had the opportunity to meet with a couple of the people working the business side of this company as well, all with the same attitude. Two volunteers I came across were the most... More

We check out the FIA on a regular basis as they bring in different exhibits several times a year. Currently featuring video games as art with a historical perspective as well. Very well done for both kids & adults.
