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.

I finally got a chance to visit this museum. I have driven past several times but never was able to stop. Today was my day. I was not disappointed. The $10 admission was very reasonable. And the displays were excellent. I am not necessarily a Corvette lover, but I am a car guy and I could appreciate all of the... More

Interesting and attractive museum. Only problem is it makes you want a 'Vette. New cars ready for delivery are sitting in the main atrium.

As most of you may know, the National Corvette Museum experienced a massive sink hole in the rotunda swallowing 8 beautiful Corvettes back in February. All the cars have since been recovered and are presently on display at the museum along with the detailed story of the sink hole. The hole in the rotunda is still opened and tours take... More

I thought there would be more old corvette's. The displays were very nice. We did see the sink hole and the cars that fell in it are on display.

Well, it is...The sink hole is incredible and what comes after is a drama in front of your eyes for every car fanatic. The museum is very interesting and the intro movie is simply great. The cars are good and couple of new Stingrays are always awaiting their new owners right in the museum building. You can actually watch them... More

Get there when there is an event for maximum corvette exposure. The tour is so so but the assembly plant tour is top notch.

I loved the feel of the museum with the neon and 50's/60's vibe. They are very proud of what they have done and they should be. The staff is very friendly and they want you to have a good experience. I enjoyed the exhibits and the way they were presented. I really enjoyed the display of the new cars that... More

If you love corvettes or just all things American this is the place for you. It's a great museum and representation for the corvette brand. I have been countless times and the great thing is it is never the same tour twice because they change out the exhibits.

The Corvette Museum has taken a natural disaster, aka sinkhole, and made it a tremendous learning experience. Being able to see the sinkhole and the damage done to the cars involved was amazing!! Kudos to those involved!
