We visited the Sloan Museum as an alternative to driving to another museum in Detroit and we were pleasantly surprised. We were able to take in the Titanic exhibit which was a rare treat. The artifacts were interesting and the experience engaging as there was featured background information on the passengers. Each of us received a boarding pass with the profile of one of the passengers and at the end of the exhibit we were able to find out if our passenger survived. This special exhibit was in addition to the regular exhibit which was just as fascinating exploring not only the regional history but 19th and 20th history common to everyday life for most Americans. Having a late relative who participated in the automotive sit-down strikes helped us to appreciate more of what life what like back then. A neat surprise were the two room children's hands on exhibit. A child in our party enjoyed that for at least an hour. There is a small self-serve (pop and snack machines) café adjacent to sit while children play. I highly recommend visiting the Sloan Museum if you are a local or from out of town. It is truly an inter-generational experience.
