Starting Saturday, Sept. 19, visitors to Sloan Museum’s newest exhibition will be given a spy file and tasked with gathering intelligence from selected exhibits to uncover information on six suspects, leading them on a journey of discovery into the secret world of spies.

The temporary exhibition will be on display in Flint through Jan. 10, 2016 and aims to demonstrate how scientific thinking can be used to solve problems in many aspects of everyday life.

Visitors also have the opportunity to use various espionage-related technologies, learn how they work and how they can be used in the wider world. Exhibits include hands-on activities including cracking the code on the lock of a transparent safe and using an oscilloscope to find a hidden bug.

“Top Secret: License to Spy” caters for a wide audience and encourages families and students to collaborate to piece together the clues and fulfill the mission.

Sloan Museum is located at 1221 E. Kearsley St., Flint. Museum hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays and noon-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $9 for adults, $8 for seniors (60+) and $6 for youth ages 2-11. Children 1 and under enter free.
