Stopped in on our way to Frankenmuth and are glad we did. Had a great showing of the history of Flint from the logging days through the Automotive industry. A lot of terrific artifacts and information. We highly recommend stopping here.

Last night, went to a meeting on the proposed plans to upgrade the museum. This is a great museum to visit for the whole family! So many attractions to see...can take the whole day, if you want.

The artifacts are fascinating. I was hoping there would be more personal effect shown, instead of a lot of dishware. It also would have been interesting to have a replica of the grand staircase, but there seems to be limited space, so that's understandable to elimate. If you are going to take children, be warned, there is A LOT of... More

Very interesting exhibit (Titanic). After Titanic, you a let out with a nice history of automobile in Flint MI. Very crowded on Saturday, but that is a good thing.

The Sloan Museum is currently featuring the Titanic exhibit (till May 2017). The cost for tickets is $14. for each adult. If you visit the Longway Planetarium just once the price is $6. per adult for each show. Here is the math: One couple (that is two adults) goes to the Sloan Museum buys tickets to the Titanic Exhibit (2... More

we visited for the Titanic exhibit and found the staff very helpful and everything professionally done.we also visited the Buick gallery on the same ticket.the permanent exhibits were very interesting because Flint has a lot of history that is often forgotten in the rust belt era and the lead water crisis.we also thought the ticket prices were quite a bargain...

My husband and I went to the Sloan Museum specifically for the temporary Titanic exhibit. I hadn't been to the museum in years (since elementary school, really) and my husband had never been, so it was a nice surprise to see how well put together the exhibit was. The display was easy to follow and the boarding pass presented to... More

The Sloan is currently hosting the Titanic exhibition. Get your boarding pass and come on aboard. We go there often and look forward to all the new displays. The summer car fair is not to be missed.

Took our 2 year old grandson for the In the Dark exhibit which was way over his head. This is really for school age children. What he LOVED were the trains, the household set up for preschoolers with the grocery store, kitchen and shopping cart just his size. He especially liked the block area with all the wooden Melissa and... More

Above average museum for a medium sized city. The permanent collection tells a great story of the history of Flint and surrounding areas. There is also an area that has something new and different several times a year.
