This museum is a mecca for Corvette enthusiasts. I am biased, since I have been driving a Corvette as my every-day transportation of 52 years….since being a senior in college. My first Corvette was a graduation gift from my grandfather who knew my love of cars. I will most likely have one for the rest of my life… Having owned... More

Very cool! A lot of history on the corvette. Worth the price if your a car buff. Close to the actual GM Corvette plant.

Very sterile. Would have been more interesting if there had been a guide or some short movies along the way. Was sort of boring.

I'm not a big Corvette fan, but it was still interesting to wander through the museum and learn a little about the history of the company and how the cars are made. However, the main attraction when I visited was actually the giant sinkhole in one of their showrooms. The damaged vehicles had been pulled out and were on display... More

You can spend hours at this place. The beauties at display are a sight. Owning a Corvette is a dream. Must visit place.

The museum was wonderful in every way. The displays were excellent and while we were not able to see it all because of some renovation being done, what we saw met and exceeded our expectations. Whether you like Corvettes or not...I think by they time you leave the NCM, you will want one!

It was amazing to see the number of Corvettes that have been loaned to or donated to this museum. It was sad to see the ones that were pulled from the sink hole. If you are a Corvette enthusiast, it is a must see.

It was nice to visit here. Even if you don't have a Corvette, the museum makes you want to own one. They have vehicles that have been purchased displayed in the lobby. These vehicles are waiting for their new owners to pick them up. The displays in the museum are set up nicely and it is easy to follow. The... More

The museum is a must see! It sheds light on what they went through to produce the corvette as well the love and care that the TRUE owners put into it. It gives a true appreciation of the car. Loved it! Also the display on the sinkhole. Sad to lose those cars, but when they had those cars on display... More

You walk thru the plant in a small group..good view of what is being accomplished. zi am not a Corvette fan but I really enjoyed the tour. People can order a car and watch it being built and pick it up there...that... More

Thank you for the review, but we wanted to clarify that it appears you visited the GM Corvette Assembly Plant, which is located across the street from the Museum. Hopefully next time you can visit us at the Museum! More
