Have lunch or a snack at the 1950s-inspired Corvette Cafe, with grilled items, sandwiches, wraps, soups, and salads.

  • Even if you are not a huge car fan this is well worth the stop. The history and story behind these cars is laid out beautifully. Very family friendly place. Oh and you can feel really good about visiting because it is run by volunteers, really good ones.
  • If your a sports care enthusiast or not, you will find this museum worth the effort to see. It was more detailed than we had expected, and gave the whole history around the reason for its creation and history up to current times. The exhibits were impressive and detailed, such as our young teenage kids could understand and follow along. The lay out is easy to follow along and see the progression of the Corvette over time. The buildings and rooms are large and spacious so that it is easy to see most times. The sold corvettes in the lobby awaiting delivery is a neat feature to see cars just off the assembly line and soon to be at the purchasers home. The cafe is nicely done retro style and prices are reasonable if you wish to each lunch there while on tour.
  • Cool Place, never thought about Corvette as an interesting car, but in true it is. Could about history of the car, the main people behind and the change of design and technology over time. Impressing was also the letter of the Management regarding the development of the project called Opel by 1952. The cars at display are in a good shape and beautiful to look at. Start to think about buying one, 🤔. Impressive was also the size of the cave, when the floor collapsed and some cars were buried. In total a very nice afternoon. They did a good job at NCM.
  • Mind you, I'm not a huge Corvette fan. Yet, my visit coincided with this year's Midwest Tesla Gathering, we had the entire place to ourselves for our Gathering's evening festivities. The most amazing part, aside from learning more about Corvette's amazing history, was the sinkhole exhibit. Simply hard to fathom, even with a direct view of 30 feet below and what's left of several precious cars. If you're a Corvette fan or owner, don't miss the opportunity to visit.
  • It was a pretty good experience.. Not only did you get to see the display of vetted but also the before and after of the collapse of the museum's floor. The technical repair of the hole and what caused it and displays of just how it happened and graphic designs of how the structure was done using a media blasted glass concept. It was really amazing work.. It's a recommendation if your passing by or vacationing in the area..
