Much better than I was expecting. Too bad the city takes a bad rap. The entire Flint cultural center was great. There is quite a bit to see at the Sloan Museum. Great layout and fun for kids as well. Even my 13 year old enjoyed this. They have a rotating exhibit area as well.

My first visit to the Sloan Museum was when I was in elementary school. I've visited many times since and it never disappoints. The displays are wonderful and the employees are very helpful and knowledgeable. The auto history is very important in this area and the Sloan Museum delivers. If you're in Flint, don't miss visiting the Sloan.

By far, an outstanding gem of the area. Be sure to visit the Buick museum on site which is in a separate building and does have a separate entrance fee. If you want to understand the creation of the auto industry, the Michigan lumber industry, and generally speaking many other aspects of Michigan history, what are you waiting for? You... More

I visited here with my friend during a video game exhibit in which you could play retro style video games. It was pretty cool and afterwards we toured the rest of the museum. This museum is a nice local history museum and showcases some Michigan history as well in the aspects of the 19th and 20th centuries in automobile, lumbering... More

Visited Sloan for the first time in many years and was very surprised at how much both my 6 year old grandson and I enjoyed our visit. We went because of the "Scoop on poop" exhibit. However, we ended up spending most of our time in the creative play areas: the play store, the kitchen and particularly the ambulance. Personally,... More

I visit this museum pretty often with my dad. They saw the scoop on poop exhibit which was a lot of fun and the history of Flint A to Z. They also have exhibits that never change and some interactive space for kids. Great place to visit when in Flint. The whole museum could take about an hour.

We started at the Buick Museum and the ticket included the Sloan museum. Lots of nice things for ages 5-95. Lots of information on the city of Flint and the auto industry and a lot of interactive things for children to do.

The Sloan Museum is a nice place to spend a Sunday afternoon. The cost, when combined with a Longway Planetarium show, is $14 for adults. The hours on Sunday are 12-5. We made an afternoon of it for my friends birthday. He hadn't been since he was a kid. It was thoroughly enjoyed! The gift shop has a lot of... More
