Enjoyed visiting the museum. A lot of history and some great input from some of the "old timers" who work there. Small but well organized and full of memorabilia.

We we here for the grossology exhibit and it was very very busy. It was very hard for the kids to do any of the hands on activities because of so many kids trying to do the same thing. The grossology exhibit was made out to be this huge exhibit and in reality it was just a little room of... More

We took our daughter here and enjoyed the Space exhibit. There were lots of hands on activities and plenty of fun even for the adults. We actually bought a Family pass so we could go back later in the year and utilize all that it has to offer.

I have visited museums across the country, and the Sloan is one of the best. Their exhibits are fun, entertaining, and interesting. It's great to see places where families can have fun together.

The Sloan Museum is located in the Flint Cultural Center. It has many exhibits detailing the history of Flint. We spent the night there for a Girl Scout outing so we had hands-on participation with many of the exhibits. When we were there the main exhibits were the Bugs! and the Pierson Doll Collection, both of which were amazing. The... More

The current SPACE exhibit, from NASA should not be missed! In this exhibit, you can touch a moon rock, ride a centrifuge, see real NASA artifacts and stuff from space. Admission is now $9 a person but you can buy a "share-a-pass" yearly membership that allows you UNLIMITED admissions to this museum, The Buick Gallery, the Longway Planetarium, and hundreds... More

An excellent and diverse selection of antique, classic, and special interest cars on the beautiful Flint Cultural Center campus. The annual auto show in June is one of the highlights of the summer in Genesee County Michigan. The Sloan Museum and the Buick Gallery is also open and included in the entry fee, an excellent value,

A grand history of the auto industry and much more. The founding of GM. Presently there is a living history exhibit of Michigan during the Civil War.. There is an auxiliary museum depicting all the cars ever made in Flint. All in all a great place to visit.

The exhibits were nice. A history of the Flint area and a special on the Packard cars. Also an exhibit of local involvement in the Civil War. There is a children's play area at the midpoint. An ambulance with working lights the kids can play in and lots of books and toys. It was a lot of fun. Still a... More

We were able to see many suberb examples of Packards from collectors. These Packards are priceless. At the time we visited, there was a display of Civil War artifacts that connect Flint to the war. Displays change over time, so check in advance to see what's featured. Kids can enjoy the photos and samples of history, from old time appliances... More
