We visited on a Wednesday morning early. VERY few people were there, so it was almost like having the place to ourselves. Very interesting and informative. We don’t own a Corvette but can certainly appreciate the styling, history and models. The display of the sink hole mess was very interesting.

The Caravan to the 25th Anniversary of the NCM was the highlight of 2019. What a great vacation with so many friends and new acquaintances. This is a brief description of our caravan which is a NCM sponsored event every five years. .so many places to review and so much to say in addition to The National Corvette Museum is such a special place.

Our Caravan. Thanks to the NCM for sponsoring such an excellent vacation.

We will then travel to Midland TX and tour the Permian Basin Petroleum Museum. The museum will provide a group rate. There are many interesting exhibits as well as a collection of Jim Hall’s Chaparral race cars. The Chaparral cars won world championships with a lot of help from Zora Duntov and Chevrolet.

We will have a police escort from Bale along I-630 for our final caravan to Bowling Green. We will plan a lunch and fuel stop in Wolfchase, TN which is an east suburb of Memphis. After lunch we will continue to Bowling Green. We do not have any blocked hotel rooms; however, the NCM is assisting finding rooms in BG. There are many new hotels which have opened so rooms will become available as over blocked rooms are released. Additional rooms are available in surrounding towns. The NCM is providing assistance finding a room in Bowling Green.

So much fun and so many places to visit during my 2019 vacation and cheers from the Maker's Mark distillery as one of our day trips from the NCM.

Great for adults and especially Corvette enthusiasts. The website had us so excited to take the tour. The Kidz Zone was to be a special surprise.

The tour was more like a history lesson. The Kidz Zone was not well maintained resulting in missing and broken items. Additionally the child size peddle corvette was unusable.

The 'cave' was so dark it terrified the child we were trying so hard to show a good time.

Once again, Bowling Green fell short when it came to entertaining out of town family.

The tour of this museum was incredible. The volunteer guide was great and had answers for every question asked. It included awesome displays of nearly every year corvette made along with the history of each. The special feature was the interesting display of the sinkhole event and the eight cars that fell into the sinkhole in 2014. A great time for all ages, corvette ower or not.
