Play Area

Reopens Saturday, May 15 at 9:00 AM

Explore an interactive gallery where kids can learn through pretend play. Play on the climber, explore the playhouse, shop for food in the grocery store, host a cookout at the play picnic table, and so much more. This outdoor-themed gallery is great for days when the weather forces you inside, but you still want to be active.

The play area has been carefully reconfigured to ensure social distancing. Four distinct sections create opportunities for kids to practice sharing and taking turns. The house area includes a grocery shopping experience, kitchen fun inside the house, and picnic tables for pretend dining. The playground area includes a climber, balance toys, and tactile puzzles. The young children's area includes mats, building toys, puzzles, and a reading nook. The play area is located directly behind the Education Station, where museum educators present a different hands-on science activity every day.

Historic Automobiles Sloan Museum's Vehicle Collection

Reopens Saturday, May 15 at 9:00 AM

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.
