“A Must-See in Bowling Green”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Great place to experience the history of an iconic American car. New Vettes are on display in the lobby, and the museum showcases the history of the line. The plant tour is well worth the time.

“New Appreciation for Corvettes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Was surprised that the tour takes you right on the floor of the factory. You get a close up look of the process and work that goes into the making of the corvette. Was interested to learn that they randomly pick 3 cars each day to test and they are tested right on the public roads in and around Bowling Green instead of a test track. This gives them a real road test. While we were waiting for the tour to begin we saw them change a couple of the display models out front with cars that had just come off the line. We really enjoyed this tour.

“See why Corvettes are Corvettes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Very, very informative. Took the public tour, lasted a little over an hour. Saw several "personal" tours taking place. Well paced. Tour guide was always asking for questions and knew all the answers. No pictures but what an experience.

“Super Cool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Like most folks, I've dreamed of having a Corvette since I was a kid. (and I still vow to -- one day!). So, We decided to make this plant tour a part of our trip. We traveled sort of last minute, so missed the reservation window, so I sent an email requesting a couple spots on the tour. Very shortly afterward, I got an email telling me that there was always room for walk ins, and some tips to make our tour better. The tour guide was pretty knowledgeable and was able to answer most of our questions. It was disappointing that we couldn't take pictures, but we understood. Very interesting to watch a car be "Born."
