Exhibit Hall features special displays that change regularly. For hands-on activities visit the KidZone, Pit Crew Challenge and numerous trivia kiosks, then try a Corvette on for size in the lobby.

Please note that the museum is still OPEN despite the sinkhole in our Skydome building.

We had a good time looking at the previous years' cars and seeing some of the history. The sink hole is amazing and the damage to the cars was incredible.

We spent several hours leisurely walking through the displays of Corvettes and learning about the history and manufacturing of this classic American sports car. There are dozens of Corvettes on display ... I personally liked Roy Orbison's 1967 Sting Ray the best; the 1983 Corvette comes in a close second. No 1983 Corvettes were sold and the only 1983 Corvette... More

A great place to catch up on all of the history of the Corvette. All of the displays are well done and thought out. We also saw the sink hole the swallowed some vintage cars, how sad. Well worth going to.

I have for years wanted to go to this place and I finally did and I was not disappointed !! A great showing of cars and also the race cars were fantastic. A reasonable entry fee was acceptable and the staff were very congenial and helpful answering questions. Easy access of the interstate and the new test track will make... More

Even if you are not an automobile or Corvette aficionado, you will enjoy this museum. Since I own two Corvettes - 1961 and 1995 - I will try not to embellish this review too much. The museum is great, outstanding, fantastic, unreal, out-of-this world, et cetera. Ok, I am guilty of slight exaggeration. Trust me you will enjoy this museum.... More

I visited shortly after the sink hole swallowed up some of the very special Corvettes on display. The museum still has a lot of very unique Vettes and memorabilia as well as dining, and a very large store to buy from on the way out, Also seeing some of the new Vette owners picking up their Museum delivered cars was...

If you aren't into Corvettes, I understand. Until last year I had no interest in them at all. Nonetheless, this museum is about the only AMERICAN sports car. It's about the success of a near failure, both the car and the museum have almost failed, but have come back strong. Its about a romantic dream of car ownership that starts... More

Went with my 15 year old son. This is right off of interstate. Great facility and well worth $10 admission. Very nicely done and the Vettes here are immaculate. Couldn't believe what bad luck they had with the sinkhole. Could have been 100 feet in any other direction and would have caused virtually no damage. Main purpose of our trip... More
