Owner description: 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.

“Go here before the factory”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

A must for all Corvette owners and wanna be owners. This was the reason for our trip from Tx. Brief video at begining helps you understand the Corvette mania. Informative displays, great collection of cars. Plan on a couple of hours to enjoy everything. Went to the factory tour the next day and really appreciated the evolution.

“Cool seeing so many in one place”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

I've always been a Corvette fan, so it was cool to see so many in one place. We didn't have a lot of time to spend so we didn't use one of the audio tours, or get an escorted tour, but it probably would have been cool to hear more info. Even the placards in front of the cars were interesting and I learned a few new facts. Worth the trip if you're a car fan.

“Like Corvettes? This is your place”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

This is definitely a place for the Corvette lover. Drove down for a day trip and visited the museum. The displays in them museum consist of a number of staged setups to put the cars in their prospective eras. There are also a large number of displays of cars alone. This is a nice museum with restaurant and other amenities, including gift shop, and is highly tailored to the Corvette enthusiast. All displays have detailed descriptions of the cars, their owners, etc. If you are not a car lover, then this might not be the museum for you. For the person with no interest in cars, you proabably will get bored after about the 20th car.

“Especially if you're a Corvette owner”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

We made the journey here as a side trip to our Nashville, TN visit. It's an hour north of Nashville and across the street from the GM assembly plant where the cars are built. There is a lot of information presented relative to the 60-year history of the Corvette, America's only true production race car. Many unique Corvettes are on display some loaned to the museum by their owners. It took us a little over an hour to get through the museum. There are opportunities to buy raffle tickets to win a Corvette. There is a diner to grab a bite (we did not eat there). There is also a Corvette store with all sorts of Corvette 'stuff'. Last but not least, the restrooms are the cleanest I've seen in years (and I've traveled A LOT). Worth the visit if you're either a car buff or Corvette owner, if you're neither, why would you even be reading this review?

“Only if you're a Corvette lover...”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

This was a nice musuem, had several cars on display. However, not being a huge car history kind of person, once you've seen 10 theres not really a need to see 30 more. The only really neat thing I discovered is that they had NASCAR pace cars. Had no idea they used Corvettes for that!
