This was on my husbands bucket list so I worked it into our trip to Nashville. It was nice but I just felt that there should have been something more and my husband felt the same. Don't get me wrong it was full of corvettes from many different years. The cars that were pulled from the sink hole were on... More

My highlight was all the Corvettes lined up waiting for their new owners to drive off! The exhibit is nice. But due to the sinkhole being repaired the last part of the museum is a bit of a tight squeezed . I'm sure it's temporary. Looking at the rest of the place it looks good. I am sure it will... More

I'm not a Corvette enthusiast, but you can't go to Bowling Green and not visit the Corvette museum. I have to admit, they are beautiful cars! What struck me the most was the cult-like following that Corvettes seem to have. It's amazing to me that there are so many people who are SO into their Corvettes. They had one entire... More

Pretty neat trip for any corvette fan or car guy. There's some history offered and the self guided tour takes maybe an hour to 1.5 hrs. Depends on how fast or slow you proceed. I'm not much for the early vettes so for those like me, you can watch customers take delivery of their brand new cars, as part of... More

Loved to learn how the corvettes are built and the quality. Only ten dollars for adults and five dollars for kids. We spent two hours and got to see it all pretty much. The only thing we wished was that there was an employee who would have told us things instead of just reading it. The movie at the beginning... More

This museum famously lost 8 cars to a sinkhole in early 2014. Ironically, some of the most interesting exhibits are of those cars (or what is left of them). I'm certainly not a car enthusiast, but I enjoyed stopping for an hour or so to look at the history of the Corvette. The admission is reasonable for about that much... More

I have passed the museum many times and had never been inside, I decided I was going to stop this time by. The museum was full of the most beautiful cars I have ever seen. I enjoyed reading the history, watching the videos and seeing how they have evolved over the years. There were many on display including ones that... More

I visited the Corvette Museum about 6 years ago! It was great you see the history of the corvette. There is a wall with pics of all corvette owners (you would be amazed who has owned a vet (like Dale Earnhardt and numerous actors and entertainers) the museum is right across the road from the Corvette factory a must see

This place was cool. I took my teenage boys thinking they would love it and I would just suck it up, but I loved it as well. Very cool old and new cars and lots of them with cool stories. I went before the floor caved in so I am not sure what the big room looks like now. Definitely... More
