Perry Archives

Perry Archives is closed for repairs. While this annex exhibition space for historic vehicles undergoes repairs, Sloan Museum plans to display vehicles from its automotive collection at Courtland Center Mall. This exhibition opens on June 16th.

Due to the major project that Sloan Museum has undertaken at Courtland Center Mall, the Research Center/Perry Archives will remain open on a limited basis. The archive houses a wide array of photographs, records and objects chronicling the people and history of Flint and Genesee County, Michigan. The archive will remain open to the public by appointment only on Wednesdays. Researchers must call 810-237-3421 or email to arrange an appointment with Collections staff. Emails are encouraged. Thank you for your patience as we navigate this time of transition.

Sloan Museum's Automotive Collection

Sloan Museum's Automotive Collection totals 100 vehicles, which are acquired through donations and occasional purchases made possible by the Sloan Museum Auto Fair, our largest annual fundraiser. Vehicles are rotated on a regular basis to ensure that our guests can see as many as possible in return visits. While a selection of these vehicles are on exhibition at Sloan Museum, Buick Automotive Gallery serves as the main exhibit space for the automotive collection.

Automotive Events

Sloan Museum Auto Fair draws thousands of people each summer for a celebration of Flint & Genesee County's automotive history, raising funds to support Sloan Museum's Automotive Collection. Car enthusiasts also come together at the free Golden Memories Automobile Gathering each year, which showcases original or authentically restored vehicles that are 50 years or older.
