Be a part of the Discovery!

Sloan Museum of Discovery will open in late 2021

Sloan Museum in the Flint Cultural Center is closed for renovation and will re-open in late 2021 as the new Sloan Museum of Discovery. We encourage you to visit our temporary exhibition space inside Courtland Center Mall. Visitors can enjoy over 30 historic automobiles from Sloan Museum's vehicle collection, as well as hands-on traveling exhibits and a family play area.

Sloan Museum’s renovation and expansion is a $26.5 million project. Over 85% of this goal has been raised through donations from private foundations, corporations, and individuals. Please join the MIllion Dollar Match and help us close the gap! Triple your impact with a gift by December 31, 2019. Your donation will be matched 2 to 1 by the C. S. Mott Foundation.
