Historic Vehicles from Sloan Museum's Automotive Collection

Courtland Center is the temporary home of over 30 vehicles representing a cross section of Sloan Museum's automotive collection. A variety of vehicles are on display, including concept cars, trucks, and classic cars dating from the early 1900s to the late 1980s. All of these vehicles have historic ties to Flint and Genesee County. Whether it was assembled in the area, entirely Flint-built, or features Flint-made parts, each vehicle helps tell a story about how the automotive industry shaped life in Flint—and how Flint helped put the world on wheels.

Wisner's Whizbang Emporium

If you loved Wisner’s Whizbang Emporium at Sloan Museum in the Flint Cultural Center, you don't want to miss the chance to play in this new gallery at Courtland Center. The new gallery gives kids a place to be active and features an outdoor theme. Play on the climber, explore the giant dollhouse, shop for food in the grocery store, host a cookout at the play picnic table, put on an puppet show, and so much more. This is the perfect spot for kids and grown-ups to spend time playing together.

Sloan Museum's Renovation

Courtland Center location will remain open throughout project

Sloan Museum in the Flint Cultural Center is closed for renovation as of December 9, 2018 and will remain open at Courtland Center. Sloan Museum’s renovation will be fully funded by private donors. No Arts & Culture Millage dollars will be used for the project. More information about the renovation will be available soon.

Sign up to participate in a focus group!

Sloan Museum is in the planning phase of its renovation project, and is seeking community participation in reimagining its Flint history exhibits. Several focus groups will be held around Flint and Genesee County, and residents are invited to attend and share their ideas for the future of the museum. We’re preparing for our exhibits to undergo a radical transformation, and we want the entire community to be part of the process of imagining what an inclusive view of Flint’s history looks like.

Individuals can sign up to participate by sending an email to Sloan@SloanLongway.org. They will be contacted with information about the project and future focus group dates. Those who cannot attend in person are invited to send their ideas via email to Sloan@SloanLongway.org.
