National Corvette Museum, Bowling Green

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.

  • Great place to learn the heritage of the Corvette. Has every thing and almost every model you can think of. You can see where they marked off were the famous sink-hole was and the caves underneath. The sky walk changes every 4 months with new displays. The theater is great. Has a restaurant with good food and very reasonable priced. Well worth the visit.
  • If you want to see all different generations of Corvettes, this is the place. You will learn a lot more about the car and it's history and records it holds. How it almost went from being bankrupt brand to bring an American icon. Staff is very friendly and you can get a lots of nice car pics. Usually not a crowded place, have a cafe and a nice store for souvenirs.
  • They've redone a lot here in the past few years. The large dioramas are great but you can't get very close and look inside the cars. I would have liked to see more Corvettes. They have the square footage to show many more cars than they do because they've prioritized atrium space, large dining space which was closed anyway, theater space and a way of designing the museum for less than optimal viewing of cars. Hardly any C-4's in the whole place. Not even any car on the glass turn style by the front entrance. Felt more authentic before all the latest changes.
  • Wonderful place to visit... so glad they preserve the historical value of an amazing machine.. it was wonderful to see what happened with the cave in and be able to see the area that was affected.. I would recommend everyone come by and check this place out...
  • Wonderful experience. I wish there had been a your guide for an extra fee just to discuss the cars I'm more detail. , overall a true national treasure. Can't wait to your the Corvette factory next door!
