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 decided to go to the museum because my teenage nephews love fast cars. I was really disappointed and expected more for $10. The sink hole was interesting.

I'm not a car enthusiast, but this was nonetheless interesting and educational about the Corvette's origins and designers. The sink hole addition is rather hilariously one of the more interesting parts of the museum. Way to monetize adversity!

A complete Museum history of Corvettes with many, many Corvettes on display. The lobby holds about 6 - 8 new Corvettes waiting to be picked up by their new owners. A great way to see the latest models on display, but do not touch. A...More

Kind of a spur of the moment day trip for us, but we enjoyed it very much. The history of the cars is interesting, and then the additional history of the museum, and the cars is an added plus.

When visiting KY, be sure to add the national Corvette museum to your list of stops. Located just off I65 in Bowling Green KY. Great visit for the whole family

Loved it. All the cars are cool. They had some from the sink hole up where you can see them and they have a spot where you can look down and see some of the sink hole

The museum has excellent exhibits. Enjoyed the sink hole demonstration area with games. I wanted to really try the simulation, however, they seem to close early at 4:40 pm even though the museum closes at 5 pm. We were quite disappointed by this as we...More

Thank you for visiting. Per our policy, and as stated on our website, the last tour tickets are sold by 4:30pm. It simply is not possible to see the entire museum in less than 30 minutes. We apologize for this inconvenience.

While they are cool cars, I wasn't particularly interested in seeing this museum, but I absolutely loved it due to their creative displays. And I loved how they turned the unfortunate sink hole incident into such an interesting part of the museum. This place has...More
