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.

Really enjoyed the museum. Liked seeing all the models and their history. Loved the older models, especially the mid-60s and really appreciated the '53 and '54 cars, The Skydome Sinkhole was interesting. They did an excellent job with the displays and story of the sinkhole. Museum has something for everyone. Make sure you include the Plant Assembly Tour when you... More

I am a Corvette Lover - Have had 3 of them and want one again. Have never found a car that I like more, I was expecting more at this museum - I was thinking they would maybe have each year displayed in order, instead of sporadically placed everywhere. Loved the entrance with the new Vettes and wish I had... More

I love late 50s/early 60s European race cars and even without a huge Corvette brand loyalty I loved it. We stopped in driving through Bowling Green and it was worth the visit. The highs: gorgeously cared for vintage and modern Cars, a lot of interesting American history, cool concept cars. The intro video in the mini/theater framed the exhibits. There... More

My husband and I, and our 7 year old son visited here. It was informative, enjoyable and entertaining. We especially liked the section on the "sinkhole". Lots of cool cars to see with the right amount of history. Loved the store, and the restaurant (although it was closed when we finished).

The museum was a fun place to visit - especially if you are a sports car fan and/or own a Corvette. Looking at the cars in the delivery section of the main lobby makes you want to get in on the action - which we did - ordered a new GS convertible to replace the old GS convertible. Will definitely... More

We learned a lot about the history of the car. Very nice displays, with about all types and colors of cars. Food was above average for someplace like this.

This museum is located right across the street from the GM assembly plant that make s the Corvette..the only factory in the US that makes Corvettes. The museum is quite extensive- they have a LOT of different corvettes on display from over the years. They do an excellent job making it interesting. A new added feature is on the sinkhole... More

Great museum that is a tribute to America's love with the Corvette. The exhibits where the sinkhole occurred are unbelievable-fortunately the museum was closed at the time. The best deal is to pair the museum with the Corvette plant tour-absolutely awesome

Although the museum could wish that a lot of their publicity was not from the sinkhole which crunched up some of its best cars, it is a fact that cannot be overlooked. So they've made the best of it and have presented a wonderful museum which, while acknowledging that the sinkhole dented their operations for a while, still impresses with... More
