We saw the huge sink hole and were able to race our car on the motorsport track. We enjoyed the week of festivities and lectures on Corvettes, by specialist.

Visited on 8/31/14. Lots of history and information about the development of the Corvette and its progression through time. Wonderful place to visit. Saw the sink hole. So sad to see all the nice corvettes that were damaged in the disaster. They told me they were going to fill it in soon. They were even making lemonade from lemons by... More

We love coming to Bowling Green! This trip we were part of the 20th Year Anniversary Celebration and it was a real thrill seeing 6 thousand Corvettes all at the Museum. The new Motor Sports Park is a fantastic addition to the whole experience !

This museum is pretty great for any car people out there. The front show room is littered with muscle cars from the past 60 years. All very beautiful and well appointed in various little exhibits. I haven't been since the sink hole ruined 8 of the cars but I hear it's actually made business better. People want to pay to... More

The museum is a self guided tour start with a movie on the beginning of the museum. Every year of corvette must be there. hands on quizes with more informational movies and lots of corvettes to look at including prototypes. They have a sink hole and they show you the cars that were destroyed falling in the sink hole.

We did stop because we wanted to see the sinkhole, but they have done a great job showcasing the corvette and it's history. Definitely worth a visit. The cafe was also very good with some healthy options.

If you are a car lover, this is a must see. I am not...but still enjoyed seeing the changes in the Vette through the years. Admission is reasonable but, the gift shop is overpriced. Should be on everyone's list to do once...more if you are into Chevy's or cars in general. The sinkhole was sad but interesting......

Fantastic experience for kids & adults. Cars are spectacular, easy to navigate. We stopped as we were driving from Nashville to Louisville, we spent about an hour or so, perfect break for kids. Good value for price.
