National Corvette Museum, Bowling Green

(4.5/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
At National Corvette Museum, you'll see over 70 Corvette models and concept cars as well as company history exhibits. Browse through thousands of photographs, movies, videos, and memorabilia. You'll have the chance to buy books, car accessories, apparel, souvenirs, and other Corvette-related merchandise. Have lunch or a snack at the 1950s-inspired Corvette Cafe, with grilled items, sandwiches, wraps, soups, and salads. In February 2014, a sinkhole opened at one of the exhibits and took several cars with it. However, the sinkhole simply became an additional tourist attraction.

  • Must see for any car enthusiast! Nicely displayed collection of Corvettes from 1953 to present day. Very interesting seeing what happens when Corvettes fall into a sinkhole. I would also very highly recommend doing the Corvette factory tour as well!
  • Everything you'd expect from the National Corvette Museum. Definitely worth the admission and two hours. They've got exhibits on important people involved with developing corvettes. They've got exhibits on how corvettes are made. They've even got exhibits on how corvettes are driven--both for leisure and sport. All of the exhibits seem well thought out, and I never found any bad grammar or even awkward wording in any of the plaques. The exhibit on the sink hole is well done, too. The museum staff is very friendly. The gift shop is pretty cool, too.
  • The people here have the same passion as the visitors which makes this a magical place. Every Covette lover must go at least once.
  • Lots of history on the corvette. Its very cool getting to see the different cars throughout the years from production models to some prototype cars, also very neat to see how they added some info about sinkholes from the disaster. They even have the cars they pulled out of the sinkhole still on display!
  • Corvettes are a staple of the Bowling Green community! Love the museum and the showroom. It's a shame what happened with the sinkhole. They do a great job of attracting national and international visitors!
