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. The Corvette Store offers apparel, collectibles, home and gift items. On-site 50's-inspired Corvette Cafe serves breakfast, lunch and snacks. Please note that the museum is still OPEN despite the sinkhole in our Skydome building. The Skydome is the only portion of the Museum closed for tours, however guests are able to see into the Dome through our plexiglass window to catch a glimpse of the hole and on-going construction work. « less

What a great place for Corvette fans. The displays are excellent and the facility is beautiful. Seeing all those cars from when they began was so nostalgic. If you love Corvettes or just history this is a not-to-miss experience!

I love how this is a living museum, with a core of cars that are always there, and others that rotate in and out, on loan from their owners.

Great place to learn about Corvettes and it's history. Sad to see the destruction of the irreplaceable models of Corvettes that fell into the sinkhole. For all things Corvette, a must visit place.

A must for every Vette owner! The sink hole was amazing to see, can't imagine the horror when it happened. Very clean bathrooms, which I find is a must! Would definitely advise anyone traveling in the area to stop in.

We visited the NCM in July and toured the Corvette factory. Both tours were excellent. While at the NCM we learned of the the raffles they hold. Our return to NCM in September was to receive a 2014 NCM 20th Anniversary Corvette Stingray we won in the raffle!!!! Second trip to the museum was probably a little more exciting for... More

Thsi is definitely a "must see" for Corvette and sports car lovers. Most people will enjoy it as well. I try to stop by every few years. Annual visits are probably not warranted due to the slow turnover of cars on exhibit and new displays, but they are getting better at both. The big attraction this time is the sink... More

If your like corvettes, stop in and visit. Many cars on display with detailed history to view as you walk through the museum. The sink hole viewing area is open with the damaged cars set up for display with before and after pictures. Great gift shop. We did not eat at the cafe on site, but there was a long... More

We did a quick pit stop here on the way to Nashville. Five members of a club from New Jersey were picking up their cars that afternoon and we got to participate in the fanfare. This is a great place to learn about this famous car or test your knowledge if you think you're an expert. The displays are very... More
