I went on a field trip with my daughter. It was a really cool tour. It's not some dumb downed version you are actually on the floor where they build the cars.

If you are near this place, stop and take a tour. You have to buy tickets and schedule the tour before hand, but it is totally worth it. Even if Corvettes aren't your thing, it's a fun tour and pretty amazing watching the assembly line process that has built American wealth.

Even though the tour was, understandingly, a short assembly overview, was still fascinating. Having a corvette made this more meaningful.

The Corvette plant tour is defiently a place you need to see. I'm not a big fan of cars but the Corvette plant is a place I really enjoyed. Seeing a very special car being put together in front of your eyes is cool. You can touch the actual cars in certain sections and a lot of the workers will... More

We spent the night in Bowling Green so we bought tickets for the factory tour. The factory is much more interesting than the National Corvette Museum. As other people have mentioned, if you drive a foreign car (at least one with a foreign name, many are now made in the U.S.) you must park out in the South 40 or... More

We made reservations in advance and I am glad we did. The walking tour and see the process close up was special . . . . .

Buy your tickets online before you go, it will save you time waiting for your tour. LOVED the tour, took about an hour to walk through the process, seeing many, many Corvettes being assembled, all different colors, convertibles, etc. At the end of the tour, you get to watch the Corvettes when the key is inserted and the Corvette is...

While we were in Bowling Green, we stopped by the Corvette Assembly Plant and went on one of the tours. Even if you don't particularly like Corvettes, it is an interesting tour and very informative on how cars are put together. It seemed a lot like a "sales presentation" at times, but our tour guide was very well informed, and... More
