Wow! Where do I begin. You really need to do this tour if you have EVER seen a Corvette on the road. The care and dedication that goes into these cars is second to none! Make a reservation and take the tour. You will not regret it!

I went to both the Corvette museum and the factory and hands down the factory was not only cheaper but BETTER, or should I say VETTER? 2 things though and I did not read this anywhere so pay attention. NO OPEN TOED SHOES! NO CAMERAS! Including cell phones (more on this later) I was with my sons 3 sons 7-12... More

A wonderful experience to share with my Dad who is a GM retiree. The factory was cool and not very noisy. The paths marked clearly. And the tour guide was very knowledgeable.

Took a tour of the Corvette factory and definitely got our $7 worth! Very organized and informative. Would recommend this as a stop for anyone who enjoys Corvettes.

If you are new to factory / assembly process it will be very interesting if your informed about the process it's decent but nothing exciting.

This is my first time back since the plant changed over to the 7'th generation. The tour guides from WKU are well prepared and even though I am a Corvette enthusiast, I learned a lot. You walk the tour and sometimes get to talk to the folks making the cars. Wheelchairs are available for those who can't walk that much.... More

This was a great experience, both for parents and for kids. We brought our 7- and 8-year old here for vacation, and we all had a great time. The tour was fascinating.

If you drive an import they make you park in the farthest lot from the entrance. The domestic chauvinism and disdain for imports is ridiculous and unacceptable. Especially since the last time I looked at a Chevy it was listed as 74% Korean. I was unable to enjoy the tour at all.

Our tour was excellent. Our guide (as all guides) is a WKU student and was very engaging. I am not a Vette fan, but I have to say once the tour was finished, I wanted one! The tour lasted about an hour and didn't feel rushed. It was very informative both about the car and the factories involved in its... More
