Historic Automobiles from Sloan Museum's Vehicle Collection

Open now through September 5, 2021

See concept cars, trucks, and classic cars dating from the early 1900s to the late 1980s, all with 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.

Welcome Back!

4190 E. Court St. Burton, MI 48509

Behind our masks, we are smiling from ear to ear as we welcome our community back to Sloan Museum at Courtland Center! Because Sloan Museum and Longway Planetarium serve many children who are unable to be vaccinated, and out of an abundance of caution for our staff and visitors, we will require that all visitors continue to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status. Thank you for helping us create the safest possible environment for our community.

Capacity is limited to ensure social distancing. Advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended, as times frequently sell out.

Wed./Thurs./Fri./Sat./Sun.: 12:00-2:00 and 3:00-5:00 PM
Sat: 9:00-11:00 AM
Closed for cleaning between ticket times.

We have been working hard to prepare the museum for your arrival and we can assure you that you will have a safe and fun experience when you visit. However, it will feel different from your past visits. We are not “going back to normal,” but are adapting with science-driven practices that will help keep our community safe.

Renovation and Expansion Project

Be a part of the Discovery!

Sloan Museum of Discovery will open in Spring 2022

Sloan Museum in the Flint Cultural Center is closed for renovation and will re-open in Spring 2022 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 $27.5 million project. Over 95% of this goal has been raised through donations from private foundations, corporations, and individuals. Every gift makes an impact! Would you like to be part of the Discovery? Click to find out how you can buy an engraved brick, or make a donation in any amount.
