Open 7 days a week and free on Saturdays, The Flint Institute of Arts truly has something for everyone. Located in the heart of Flint's cultural center, the museum exhibits and collections are hands down fantastic (2nd largest in Michigan). My personal favorite things about the FIA are the exhibits, the FOAM films & documentaries on Friday and Saturday nights,... More

Friday night was just going to be another night at home until my Dad called and asked if I wanted to see a movie at the FIA. "A touch of sin" was playing for a few nights. It was a Chinese film with subtitles. A very different type of movie about revenge for injustice. The FIA is a wonderful place... More

The other educational and entertainment venues located here include Sloan Museum, Buick Automotive Gallery, Longway Planetarium, The Whiting, Flint Youth Theatre and Flint Institute of Music. We spent most of our time with the newest exhibition — Contemporary African American Art —... More

Went to Flint Institute of Arts and was amazed. I grew up in the Flint area but had never been the F I A. It was a pleasant surprise. It's in the cultural center of Flint (YES Flint has a lot more to offer than violent statistics). The museum had a wonderful collection of Modern Art and the Renaissance collection... More

The FIA will occasionally feature artists I admire such as Matisse or LauTrec. I sometimes feel that they emphasize modern art too much. Also, that steep ramp can be murder on elderly or disabled patrons.

Travelled 59 miles to see the Toulouse Lautrec exhibit and was extremely impressed with the exhibit, space for the exhibit and the museum as a whole. Exhibit was heat!! Well hung and labelled. Beautiful space and area, I give them a 10. Museum as a whole gets a 10. Can't wait to go back for the next exhibit

A great art museum with revolving exhibits. Much nicer then one would imagine for Flint. Many master artists. Just finished an exhibition of American artists.
