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

I'm just a regular guy, so for me it was alright. Of course the big sink hole kind of killed the best part of the place. My kids liked it, but the factory tour was way better. I was expecting a lot more, the kids liked it so it was not a total loss. I would go once but not... More

I wish there had been a better view of the sinkhole. The viewpoint that was given was behind the cone in the center. So the only way you could see the sinkhole was via a webcam...which they had. It was very sad to see all the Corvettes tore up. I'm glad they had them on display though. It's going to... More

The Corvette Museum and the museum delivery of our new Corvette was a fantastic experience. If you are purchasing a new Corvette and you can arrange the museum delivery I would highly recommend it. The staff was very helpful and I would say exceptional in every way. We first toured the manufacturing plant across the street and I would recommend... More

The place is neat, a museum about corvettes. A lot of cars on display with enough variety to stay interesting. The concept cars were a favorite part. We stopped in to see the sinkhole and resurrected cars. You cannot really see the sink hole very well there. They have a webcam and viewing window but too far away to know... More

Been to this museum a couple of times and enjoy it each time. Clean, very well done exhibits, and a nice gift shop. Plus the cars are great to look at!
