  • This is a kids Museum. And when I say "kids Museum", I mean the kids take over. It isn't set up very well. Kids running all over the place. Parents do not keep their children under control.  more »

  • This is where of the history of Flint and the surrounding area comes alive. The Sloan Museum splendidly splays out important themes in the county's history, going back to it's Native American roots to it's labor disputes and strikes, the automotive industry, transportation, the grocery industry, and much more. Stilled scenes of yesteryear outfitted with fully-dressed figures and of-era decor present a glimpse into the past. Exhibits aren't too lengthy, and neither is the amount of reading required to soak-in each display. Overall an awesome learning experience for me and for the children.
  • Was impressed with the arrangement of the special Titanic exhibit. Things were also well placed in the rest of the museum to keep the adults and children occupied and attention held. A few hands-on items as well. A couple favorites were the working ambulance and the olde time bicycles. A good journey for a quick family trip.
  • Went for titanic exhibit. No pictures were allowed to be taken inside exhibit. There were a few items from the titanic (tools, articles of clothing, etc,) a large piece of ice to demonstrate the iceberg, and exhibit of first & third class cabins. In all, the walk through took about 15 minutes. Waited 8 months for this exhibit & it definitely was not what we hoped it would be. There was a photo souvenir you had the option to purchase at the end ($20, $25, or $30). You also got to walk through the entire museum and experience the history of Flint. There also was a nice souvenir shop at the entrance with many interesting items.
  • I went to see the Titanic display. First time at this museum. The Titanic items are so clean they look like they are out of an antique store. Not what I expected. Only metal and paper items show deterioration. One tea cup had barely noticeable marks from a coral or whatever on it still. There is a lot to read. I missed a lot of it because my husband was with me....and impatient. It was my idea to go. For $15 per person entrance fee, I thought it would be better....more... something.
  • What a nice place. I was only able to check out the Sloan museum, but there are a few other buildings around that have cool stuff in them too. Hopefully, I can get back to check them out.
