We loved the museum and it has a wonderful kids zone. It is something everyone should see! We will take friends and family to see it for sure!

“Like Visiting the Hospital Where Your Child Was Born!”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

It was GREAT to see where my Corvette was made. The tour was informative and guides took their time answering questions. All-in-all, it was a good deal for the price and a great experience.

“If you're a corvette person, this is your Graceland.”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

I had not been to the NCM since 2001. I was amazed when i pulled up and saw the giant new addition. I love corvettes, so i wanted to take my wife and son here. It was actually her suggestion, as we were already going to Mammoth Cave. They were not disappointed. Actually my 19 month old son was quite disappointed when we made him leave the kids area to see the rest of the museum. He really enjoyed the car they have there for kids to "work" on.

Most of the cars on display are permanent fixtures, and i remember them from 12 years ago, but there are some newer displays. The museum area is mostly the same as it has been, with the new addition being the library/archive, corvette cafe, and a new gigantic gift shop.

If you're driving a vette, be sure to leave some fat black rubber on the pavement in front of the museum.

“Best Bang for the Buck !”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

If you're considering a trip to or through Bowling Green , Ky, set aside the time to visit the NCM. This is an all day adventure, that you will want ample time to fully enjoy. My son and I spent the day comparing and appreciating all the classic muscle that is housed within the meusem. We were fortunate enough to plan our visit on a Thursday, which allowed us the thrill of watching the bi-weekly Corvette drawing.

This place is a must-see. Even if you're not a Corvette lover, you need to come and visit and see how they put this whole thing together. Unfortunately, the factory is not open now. There are doing a changeover to the C7 and redesigning parts of it. When they do open it, and you're back in the area, stop back again. It's a must see.

It's also fun to watch people take ownership of their brand-new corvettes from the showroom of the museum. All employees from the stores and people visiting will come out watch you drive off the museum floor and clap as you do. This is an option that you have when you order your Corvette.

A very cool place you need to see.
