Flint museum creates exhibit on city's water system

FLINT, Mich. (AP) -

A public museum in Flint has commissioned a traveling exhibit on the science and history of the city's water system in response to the ongoing crisis.

The exhibit, titled "Water's Extreme Journey," will open Jan. 23 at the Sloan Museum and will close May 8. It's described as an interactive maze that challenges visitors to explore the water cycle from the perspective of a water drop that's trying not to become polluted.

The Sloan Museum also has curated a local exhibit component and 13 public programs aiming to educate and empower visitors to take action on local water issues.

The localized portion of the exhibit features a timeline exploring the history of Flint's drinking water beginning in 1873.
