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.

We were looking to kill some time on our way to Louisville and decided to stop by the Corvette Museum. It was cool, with the nice reception area and pretty decent self-guided tour. Unfortunately, the highlight is the sinkhole that ate up 8 vintage Corvettes, although they are still on display next to the sinkhole. The museum is pretty cool,... More

Having owned over 8 different Corvettes over the last 40 years wew decided it was about time to visit the museum on our way to Nashville before the huge crowds from the upcomming 20 year celebration crowds desended on Bowling Green. Any automotive enthusiast wiil enjoy and appreciate the history and vehicles displayed at the museum as well as to... More

I drove my brother, his wife, and his son to Bowling Green for them to be delivered their new 2014 Corvettes at the museum. I am not a Corvette fan. I am a Porsche fan. However, this museum was a one-of-a-kind tour for me that also gave me a detailed tour of the Corvette factory to which I had never... More

So we drove 2.5 hours because our 14-year-old daughter is infatuated with Corvette's. For a not-for-profit museum is was pretty cool. They have a pretty big selection, but I guess being the only on in the United States, and being right next to the factory, I thought they would have had more. It's definitely worth the trip if you like... More

Nice display of the history of the Corvette. The sinkhole was amazing as well as viewing the cars that fell in and are now on display. Looked like a nice restaurant and a very good Corvette item gift shop. If you have to make a choice between this and the factory tour, I would highly suggest going on the factory... More

A great afternoon. Very interesting displays and beautiful cars. Sink hole and the damaged cars told a tale of a tragic afternoon this year. Great gift shop.

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
