First time attending Sloan Car Show. We got free tickets from Genisys Credit Union. Excellent. A lot to see. Can also got to go into the Sloan Museum for free with our admission to the car show. We have been to the museum before but never been into the Flint museum part before. We enjoyed learning more about our city.

The Sloan Museum was wonderful. I thought it would only focus on the automobile industry but it was so much more. It was great to hear and see so much about the history of Flint. The guided tour was great because we found out little stories about the people. I definitely recommend going there and make sure you have a... More

This museum features fur-trading exhibits, lumber information from years past as well as cars and the history of General Motors. They moved part of a home built in 1870 and exhibited a Victorian style room from the Eli T. Smith home. There is a lot of information on the Flint Sit-Down Strike from 1936. There was a Giant Bugs interactive... More

Great going through with the family and seeing everything this museum has to offer. This has a lot to do with the automotive industry but has so much more. They have a section that changes every few months and makes it interesting to go back each time. Just saw they put a bugs world exhibit in for the summer. Kids... More

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
