I have had corvettes since I was in my 20's so I very much enjoyed the corvette museum. Took my grandson with us and he likes corvettes too. Mainly went to see the sinkhole and the corvettes that were ruined because of it. What a shame, very sad to see them so damaged.

Really enjoyable collection of cars and history of the Corvette. We got our pictures taken in front of a green screen which put us in the seat of a variety of Corvettes. It was a novel souvenir to take home.

A wonderful tour through the history of the corvette. They honor those behind creating the corvette. From designers to manufacturing. They show the racing history. They also show what happened when the sinkhole pulled in the classic cars. Some they could save & others they couldn't. Plus there was a display on asteroids which we were confused as to why...

This museum was nice but under renovations so part of it not open to the public. They did only charge us half the admission price so that was nice, $5 each instead of $10. Would like to go again when renovations are complete.

The famous sink hole is now filled, but you can see the Corvettes that fell in with the sink hole. Be sure to visit the Corvette Museum Gift Shop and Restaurant. I live here in Bowling Green, KY and the Corvette Museum is one of our most popular attractions.

My tour group of longtime Wisconsin farmers, none of whom has ever owned a Corvette, and I thoroughly enjoyed our Corvette Museum visit. We were there on the first anniversary of the sink hole and expected the place to be overrun with tourists. That did not happen, which made our visit even more enjoyable. We visited before our Corvette assembly... More

If you are a Corvette fan, you must check out the museum. But be prepared to pay to see those beauties and a big hole in the ground! The cafe is really good, too. You can see a few Corvettes, eat at the cafe, and shop for a nice outing, too! Not too mention Bowling Green has a lot to... More

Don't pass up this Corvette Museum AND the story behind the SINKHOLE. Yes, the sinkhole is filled but you can see the activity going on and some of the cars that were in the sinkhole. The museum is worth the time.
