This is a really interesting museum with a variety of permanent and temporary exhibits. The Carol Pierson historical doll collection has a variety of displays and dioramas illustrating historical events (such as Paul Revere's ride or the Westward Expansion), notable historical figures, and reproductions of dresses worn by the first ladies of the United States from Martha Washington to Michelle Obama. There are exhibits of historical and contemporary automobiles, and galleries for temporary exhibits. The main permanent exhibition is a history of the Flint area beginning with the Native American tribes who lived here, followed by European explorers, trappers and loggers. It traces the development of industry here from the logging camps to the first wagon and carriage companies, and shows how these companies grew and developed into Buick and General Motors. There is a very interesting interactive gallery that explores the U.A.W. Sit Down Strike, and galleries that how the auto industry influenced domestic life and immigration in Flint. A very fascinating and well exhibited and researched museum that will be interesting to all ages.
