The secret needs to get out about this museum! It's a great place for the family. Friendly staff and huge exhibits... lots of things to do and play with for the kids. My kid loves going there and so do I. Clean, interesting and fun. Great history lessons for people of all ages.

Went on a weekday and they weren't crowded. It was great, thoroughly enjoyed all the exhibits. Was able to mosey through and not feel rushed to get out of the way. Interactive activities, geared for children were entertaining. Best place in Flint for seniors, families with children to enjoy a day out.

Took out of town sister for all of our first visit to the Sloan. WONDERFUL experience. We have lived in Flint for over 28 years and never knew most of it's history. The extra exhibit about the colonies was also enjoyable. we all LOVED it.

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
