“When I grow up my first car will be a corvette”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We are not petrol heads but it is an awesome museum, we visited from NZ while on holiday. The kids loved it as well and the museum in fact opened a kidzone the day we were there. The cars are amazing and its very well laid out. The shop was great (hence the t shirt title of review) and the corvette cafe was great fun with really friendly staff. We have NEVER had turkey legs before!!! Loved the honesty in the museum saying that the 80's car wasnt that great so they knew they could improve it. Even outside there are heaps of corvettes, great place was very impressed. Only downside was we didnt win the Corvette raffle - we were certain we would!!!

“If you love Corvettes”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I'm not a huge Corvette fan, but really enjoyed the museum ! Am more of a fan now. They have really done a nice job w this museum. Highest quality historical, graphical, educational, visual displays. The diaramas (sp?) were really nice. Well done facility. We only spent 1.5 hours but one could spend all day. Didn't try the Corvette Cafe, but looked cool. Be sure to take advantage of the discounts for AAA, and whatever else they have. I paid $8 w AAA discount

“Would recommend”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Learned about this museum when researching places to visit on our trip. The museum is a great tribute to the Corvette and its history. Very educational and the stories behind the cars on exhibit are informative. Additionally on our visit, the museum hosted a traveling 9/11 exhibit in the main hall that was very moving. Tip: We purchased our tickets at the Candlewood Suites for $2 off per ticket to the museum.
