See over 70 Corvettes in periodic settings including a mid-century barbershop, service station and historic race track. 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.

Spectacular Corvettes and one gigantic sinkhole.

By now nearly everyone has knowledge of the gigantic sinkhole that opened up in the museum and literally swallowed several museum-quality Corvettes. The good news is that most of... read more

By now nearly everyone has knowledge of the gigantic sinkhole that opened up in the museum and literally swallowed several museum-quality Corvettes. The good news is that most of them were recovered, with the exception of two that were just too far gone to be restored. This museum is ground zero for any Corvette owner (or wishful owner) and on...

Just a fun/ interesting place to go. Try the frito/chilli salad at the Cafe. Great Teeshirts, great prices...Fun to watch people seeing and picking up their new Corvette they ordered several months before.

We drove up to Bowling Green to visit this museum while in Nashville on vacation. It's about an hour drive, so not bad. The admission was very reasonable ($10/adult). The facility was a nice size and very clean and easy to navigate. The sinkhole disaster is still being fixed, so part of the building is off-limits. They do have the... More

There is ONLY one American Sports car and that is the Corvette. The National Corvette Museum is the place to see and feel and touch the iconic Corvette. And once the sink whole has been repaired (and it is about done) there will be not only a history of the development and research surrounding the Corvette but also milestone Corvettes... More

Great collection of America's sports car. Great seeing some of the old dream cars. It was also very interesting to see the damaged (so sad) cars still on display.

It was everything I was hoping for. Plenty of history and facts about the Corvette and the aftermath of the sink hole was very interesting, especially the cars. We didnt really care for the space section of the museum because I didnt really see what that had to do with vettes but the rest made up for it.

We are car enthusiasts and our dream is to own a 'Vette so we really enjoyed this museum! The hours are convenient and they even have a small café where you can eat. I enjoyed looking at the Corvette timeline and seeing a car from each model year. They also have the different engines that have been used in the... More

My husband and I enjoyed walking through the museum and seeing all the corvettes. We got to see many different years and body types/styles from the new ones to the early models. We also got to learn about the sink hole and how it damaged many valuable cars. The room where the sink hole occurred was closed at the time... More

I visited the museum last year a few months after the sink hole incident. We weren't able to enter the room with the sinkhole but we're were able to view the room. Cars recovered from the hole were on display which was sad to see but also kinda cool. There were many interactive displays which the museum much more enjoyable.
