Sproutside at the Flint Children's Museum

To inspire a love for learning and awaken imagination through exploration and hands on play.

Eye Spy a great time at the Crim this Saturday! Join us in downtown Flint…






The Crim Festival of Races is happening in downtown Flint this Saturday. The Flint Children’s Museum will be hosting a super fun event on the lawn of UM Flint on the corner of Saginaw Street and Kearsley Street. Become an official Flint Children’s Museum Spy after completing your training. Image

The museum is right on the 3 mile marker of the Crim race! Because we are right in the middle of the course the museum will be closed this Saturday, August 24th. We will be here to cheer on the runners and to provide a sprinkler to cool down under!

Back to the Bricks

Last week Flint hosted the annual Back to the Bricks car cruise. A new event this year was a pinewood derby car race that was held downtown. GM sponsored the event and gave away hundreds of pinewood derby car kits to the community. The museum competed against other local charities in a race. Here we are at the starting line!


We didn’t take first place, but it was a good race! We had lots of fun watching all of the cars and looking at their creative designs. Thanks to Tom here at the museum for building such a beautiful car!
