Museums for All
Museums for All


The Flint Institute of Arts has partnered with the Institute of Museum and Library Services to participate in Museums for All, a cooperative initiative created to give all families from all backgrounds the opportunity to become a regular visitor of museums.

Present your Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and a valid photo ID to a Visitor Services Representative at the FIA Lobby front desk. This will allow up to 4 individuals per EBT card admission to the museum for free. This benefit is exclusively reserved for admission to the museum and cannot be applied to any special events or programs at the FIA and may not be used in the FIA Museum Shop, at The Palette Café, in the Art Sales & Rental Gallery, or in the FIA Art School.
Information
Visitor Services
Our knowledgeable Visitor Services team is eager to greet you when you enter the Lobby of the Flint Institute of Arts. They are waiting to direct you in beginning your self-guided tour throughout the galleries, with audio guides and a detailed floor plan of the grounds. They are able to answer any questions about the museum, or assist you with any of your concerns.
Conduct
Gum, food and drinks are not permited in the galleries.
Visitors are asked not to touch any of the artwork in the FIA. Works of art are very fragile, even those made of stone and metal. Salts and oil residues from visitors' hands destroy the surfaces of works of art over time. It is our responsibility to preserve and protect the works of art in our public trust for future generations.
Photography
Photography for personal use is permitted in permanent collection galleries, except where “No Photography” is noted on an object’s label with the symbol above. Photography in temporary exhibition galleries is not permitted. Photographs may not be published, distributed or sold for commercial purposes. Flash photography, tripods, and selfie-sticks are not permitted in the museum.

To request photographs for commercial or publishing uses, and to schedule photo, video, or commercial shoots please contact Assistant Registrar, Heather Jackson at hjackson@flintarts.org.
Coat Check
Free coat check service is offered to visitors at the Visitor Service desk at the North entrance of the building. Large purses, bags, backpacks, packages, umbrellas must be checked. Lockers are available free of charge for such items. Strollers may also be checked.
