  • It is truly amazing to have a sidetrip when we are on our way to Chicago from Nashville. Outside this museum is very inviting! Really was amazed and mesmerized by the car displays inside the museum. Place is well maintained and is very clean. Its so inspiring to see the series of Corvette cars. Truly worth visiting! I want to be back here!
  • I visited while visiting a friend in Auburn. It was cool to see all of the different cars but the COOLEST PART was the exhibit about the sinkhole. There was a part where you could see how far down the hole went, ans you could experience the sinkhole while it was happening inside this cave area. I'm not super into cars so the majority of the exhibits were pretty to look at but I couldn't appreciate them as much as someone else might. Still a must in Bowling Green though.
  • It has been several years since I have been but this was a great day trip from Nashville. Years of Corvettes and memorabilia showcasing the great American sports car. Additionally to keep the museum educational an exhibit on dinosaurs. I would like to go back to see the sink hole.
  • The National Corvette Museum is a staple visit for anyone interested in museums, car history, or Corvettes. It was around $10 to tour and you tour at your own pace. Depending on whether you read every description at the displays, it should take 1.5-2.5 hours to walk through. The best part of the museum was being able to sit in a brand new Corvette at the very end of the museum tour. They also apparently do events at the museum.
  • This place was amazing. Went with my 9 and 11 year olds who loved it. Hands on exhibits, video, interactive displays ... A very thoughtfully presented museum suitable for just about anyone. We LOVED most the display and back story about their sinkhole and the integration of this tragedy to their displays. This is very clearly a modern, fun type of museum with a focus on engaging all audiences. We spent 2-3 hours there.
