Bowling Green is known for being the location of the General Motors Corvette Assembly Plant.  Visitors should make sure to gain an understanding of what this means for the community by visiting both the plant itself and the National Corvette Museum .  The plant offers guided tours and the museum offers a look at some of the most interesting cars ever made.

Bowling Green is also home to Western Kentucky University where visitors will find displays and museums of different kinds.  The Kentucky Museum and Library, for example, is a campus-based library which includes a museum of artifacts and literary exhibits focusing on the history and cultural heritage of the state.

The history of the area can be explored in-depth at the Riverview at Hobson Grove historic home museum.  Harkening back to the glory days of the Victorian era, Riverview reveals the story of the simple and the grand, the innovative and the traditional, all reflecting distinctive style and superb craftsmanship. 

Another historic home in the area which is available to tour is the Eloise B. Houchens Center.   This circa 1904 Greek Revival home has beautiful inlaid wood flooring, carved fireplaces and mantles--a perfect setting for cultural and educational events.

Travelers who are interested in looking towards the area’s future instead of its past should head to the Barren River Imaginative Museum of Science.  This is an interactive science museum which educates visitors about basic scientific principles but which also provides information on cutting edge scientific technology.
