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.

No matter what kind of car you drive or are a fan of, I think this is a cool place to check out if you're in the Bowling Green area. The layout of the museum is very nice, informative, it's not so large you feel like it's never ending and there are many beautiful classic Corvettes on display. I really... More

We have said for years some day we will stop in the Corvette Museum instead of just driving by. This was the year! The museum was very interesting and the cars were "visually superb" (from their movie.). We also really enjoyed eating in the cute little cafe. I found the info about the sink hole really interesting too.

I don't own a corvette - I own a mustang - but sports cars all interest me. This was very interesting - I did learn many things about Corvette history and the people behind it. Most interesting was the "sink hole" that ate up over a million dollars worth of cars. Was very well done - museum was easy to... More

Very interesting and cool even if you drive a Ford you will want to go buy a Corvette by the time you leave this place not an all day event but a must to fit in when in the area

This was covered in part of the tour of our #38th State of our 50-State Quest. I should have gone into more detail then so I will do it now. (( remember this was done in August of 1997 not 2016)) Across the street from the Corvette Assembly Plant is this museum. Just kept the fun going we just had... More

we learned a lot about the corvettes history and saw some really great cars.The security footage of the sink hole was hard to watch and then too see what the cars look like now made you want to cry.

The National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, is an amazing facility and well worth a visit to anyone interested in Americana or automotive sports history. Their exhibits are top notch and the entire facility is presented in a way that is professional, entertaining, and fun all at the same time. I've never met a friendlier staff, from the cooks...

The exhibits are excellent and great history of the Corvette. The display of the cars that fell in the sinkhole are amazing. You can spend hours in here!

This was a stop we had intended to do on our way down to Nashville but I am glad we waited until our return trip because we had more time. We went in with the intention to just tour the museum, but the tours of the Corvette Manufacturing facility were still available so we did that too. Wow! I loved... More

Plan on spending several hours at the museum. As you enter, you see new Vets waiting to be claimed by their new owners. The displays were nostalgic and the Vet selection was great - new, old, prototypes, models, etc. The "collapse" exhibit was interesting too. I also enjoyed shopping in the Gift Shop.
