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.

We have been to many car museums around the country and found this one a bit disappointing. The museum tour starts with an introduction to the beginning history of the Corvette but didn't do a good job of explaining why body changes were added or taken away. The story about the sink hole was probably the most interesting part of... More

This is a one of a kind museum dedicated to a one of a kind car. Trust me when I say I'm no car enthusiast. I use cars only as a means to transport me safely where I want to go. I have to say, though, even I was interested in this place, the car's history and story. The most... More

On our vacation to Bowling Green from NJ, one of the main tourist attractions that we wanted to see was the Corvette Museum and it was all if not more than we'd hoped it would be. The Corvettes were incredible and their history and impact on American culture were on clear display with the cars themselves. I loved the special... More

We stopped here during our visit to Mammoth Cave with our 7 year old son. None of us are big car junkies, but we still had a nice time. I would reccomend stopping if you are planning a trip to Mammoth Cave. Bowling Green is about 30 minutes south. Plus, the city around the cave is not much to look... More

I am not a Corvette fan, but I enjoyed this museum because of the extensive number of cars to see and the information about the sinkhole. The video about the sinkhole and the cars that didn't get repaired tell quite a story. The store had some nice prices on model cars that will be great gifts for my grands.

The museum is laid out very nicely. It has a large sample of different models and the staff is very friendly. There is a nice film and lots of educational info throughout on the Corvette's history.

This is a good museum if you like cars. Especially nice was the information on the sinkhole and what is happening since then.

The museum is very interesting and traces the development of the car all the way up to current production. They have key historical cars on exhibit that mark the milestones of the cars lineage.
