This was my first visit although our daughter and my husband have been several times. We went specifically for the Titanic exhibition and got to enjoy both the museum and the exhibition. You won't be disappointed. So much to do and see even if the kids are younger they will enjoy.

Went for the Titanic Exhibit. Purchased tickets online and they had a time to enter but found that they really did not go by that, maybe on a weekend but we went on an Friday and no crowds. The ticket also includes the regular museum part. Parking was free and easy walking to the entrance. There is no photos or... More

First visit to the museum, easy to find and free parking is a bonus. We had seen the exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Art several years ago and decided to drive to Flint to see it again. The timed pre ticket option is wonderful and would highly recommend this option. The exhibit is well laid out and easy to... More

My daughter saw an ad on TV for the Titanic exhibit at the Sloan Museum. Although we live 45 minutes away, this is not a typical stopping ground for me. I got on the internet and was able to navigate around their site with ease. I bought tickets to the museum ($7 for adult) and also the exhibit ($14). When... More

We have been to so many. Each and every exhibit has been wonderful and educational. We have seen body functionality. Dinosaurs, locomotion and many others. Fun for the young and young at heart.

IMO not worth $14, they have a few artifacts but not many. Most of the information and details I already knew from the movie and other TV programs and articles about Titanic. It is nice that you can walk through the rest of the museum on your way out and see some history of the Flint area.

Stopped in on our way to Frankenmuth and are glad we did. Had a great showing of the history of Flint from the logging days through the Automotive industry. A lot of terrific artifacts and information. We highly recommend stopping here.

Last night, went to a meeting on the proposed plans to upgrade the museum. This is a great museum to visit for the whole family! So many attractions to see...can take the whole day, if you want.

The artifacts are fascinating. I was hoping there would be more personal effect shown, instead of a lot of dishware. It also would have been interesting to have a replica of the grand staircase, but there seems to be limited space, so that's understandable to elimate. If you are going to take children, be warned, there is A LOT of... More
