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.

  • Very interesting tour where we were able to see Corvette's from the beginning. Cars recused from sink hole on view was very interesting. Staff is very well informed & friendly. Our friend has a brick ...  read more »
  • They made the sink hole from 2014 into a display. Heart breaking to see some of those cars destroyed, but well done. 
  • It is definitely worth a visit. My family and I really enjoyed it the admission prices was very reasonable give your self time don't go if you will be rushed for time 
  • 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.
  • Had a wonderful time at this museum. I didn't realize there were so many versions of the same model corvette. It's amazing how they took the sinkhole disaster and added as part of their museum. Very pro military, so vets go see some vettes....see what I did there? Lol
  • I love Corvettes so how could I not love this museum? I wish it was more interactive. You have to stand so far away from some of the older vehicles you can't even inspect them. I would love to be able to sit in one, touch the steering wheel, fiddle with the knobs and push on the peddles. I get that if you let too many people do that then things will start to break/get stolen. Could you have a couple cars for the public to experience and not just look at?
  • Didn't even get to go in. They where holding some kind of event and every person at an gate told us next gate with an attitude. Like two people from out of state know where they are going. The last guy couldn't even be bothered to get out of his seat to actually give us proper directions. Just said two lefts. We decided if the attitude was this bad outside we didn't want to bother with inside.
  • A surprisingly incredible museum with almost everything you could imagine related to the Chevrolet Corvette. Authentic donated rare cars, facts and history, and even the complete story of the sink hole with the unrestored and restored cars. Add also that new Stingrays were on display when we went and Corvette owners bring their cats to the special parking area. Any car lover or gear head will love this museum!
