The Sloan Museum focuses on Flint's role in the automotive industry. The exhibits are very well done and give a great sense of how we got to 'now'.

While there’s not a GM museum in Flint, the Sloan museum has a few areas dedicated to the history of GM. It’s a nice, little museum; but, not a showstopper.
