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.

Pretty reasonable price even though the sinkhole and non working interactive displays shortened the tour. Miss my vette, maybe I need another one. Even my wife enjoyed it and she feels that cars are just for getting from point A to point B.

My brother used to have a few corvettes ---- one he destroyed and rebuilt. We had been down in Tennessee in February for a funeral and drove by the museum before this happened. After the news reports we decided to check it out on our way back down to Tennessee for a wedding. Reasonable price for admission. If you are... More

This was a fun attraction to see all of the many different kind of corvettes that have been made through the years. The gift shop was very fun, it had items that I had never seen before. The cafe was very fun also. It looked like a an old time diner that you could sit and have a snack and... More

I completely understand that they have experienced a natural disaster....but they did not do a good job of recovering the exhibits and keeping the place interesting. If you can't offer what you used to, either lower the price or don't reopen until you can! The review would have been better as the cars that are still there are very interesting... More

Thank you for your recent visit and we are sorry your visit wasn't as great as you hoped. We did go and count how many Corvettes are on display and currently there are 52. This number includes the 8 "sinkhole" Corvettes, and the 13 cars in our lobby area. Based on your estimate of 15 display cars we are worried... More

Even if you are not a Corvette enthusiast this is still worth a visit. The place is loaded with all styles of Corvettes, from the newest waiting to be delivered to some lucky owner, to the one of a kind in the museum. If you can take the assembly plant tour, you will find it very informative. If you have... More

We stopped in Bowling Green as a mid-point to our final spring break destination. The Corvette museum is highly rated and recommended by locals, so we went. It was a good bit of history, and there is a really good cross-section of the cars. The lobby has some new models that are available to photograph for free. When we went... More

Have visited several times before, this time went to see devastating damage caused by sink hole a few weeks ago. The cars that have been recovered are available to view so is the area where the recovery and repairs to the building are being done through a viewing area. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

During the drive between Nashville and Louisville, I was looking for a stop for my dog and me. When I saw the large Corvette sign, we pulled off I65. Although we were unable to go inside, we enjoyed walking around the campus. Views of a few cars and the countless engraved bricks and banners from Corvette clubs/fans showed the Corvette... More
