  • While there’s not a GM museum in Flint, the Sloan museum has a few areas dedicated to the history of GM. It’s a nice, little museum; but, not a showstopper.  more »

  • Another gem which is home to Flint, Michigan. The city really has an amazing museum. I could easily spend hours inside of there looking at everything and reading all of the information they have posted. They often have really neat traveling exhibits which come through there. I have always had a very positive experience going there. Highly recommend it if you are taking the family or are even going by yourself.
  • Take a step back in time and learn about the roots of Flint. I hate to use the words "this once great city" as there are still a plethora of things that make Flint great. Still, you can learn about the golden era of Flint manufacturing that really made it a global powerhouse it has yet to repeat today. There are plenty of interactive exhibits (picking up phones, pretend screwing on lug nuts etc.) to keep the kids active and lots of fascinating history and world-class quality exhibits to keep the interested teen or adult going. Would recommend to anyone visiting and would strongly urge anyone who lives in the area to go.
  • The place in the world to see history to having a birthday party. I have been visiting the Sloan for years. My daughter have been there since she was 2. Now she bring her daughter. She had a birthday party for her in Dec of 2017. She just turn 2. They have a yearly pass. Great thing to have if you are going to visit quite offen.
  • Some very interesting displays about the history of Flint Michigan. Really enjoyed seeing all of the history y'all in one place. Also, if you purchase a ticket to this Museum you also get entrance to the Buick Museum as well.
  • There's so much to see and learn here! Excellent place to take the kids. Excellent gift shops as well as a Cozy coffee shop! The historic museum also offers a wide variety of entertainment that includes Art, Arts and crafts, Movies and Games. There's almost always a special event to look forward to! Excellent location with a library, planetarium and theater right next door!
