“Pay homage to America's sports car”
Since 1953 the Corvette has been America's Sports Car. The National Corvette Museum was established as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit foundation with a mission of celebrating the invention of the Corvette; preserving its past, present and future; and educating the public about Corvette.Corvette enthusiasts from all over the world kindly and lovingly refer to the NCM as their home ... Their Mecca. We especially invite you to visit us in person (in Bowling Green, KY) and experience first hand the passion and the excitement of America's Sports Car, the Chevrolet Corvette.The GM Bowling Green Corvette Assembly Plant, the only place in the world where Corvettes are made, is located across the street from the National Corvette Musuem at I-65, exit 28.
Worth the trip, if nearby. The sinkhole and crushed cars made it even cooler. Otherwise, not really much to see. Disappointed in that. Did not see nearly as many cars on display as expected. The exhibit on frame assembly was neat. 2adults, two teens, and an 8 yo = 25$ family admission.
Sinkhole Vettes are on display now before plans to restore them. Get down there now!
Our family likes cars and this was a must do on our vacation. In the lobby there is a corvette that they let you sit in and take pictures. The gift shop had lots of fun corvette souvenirs. We enjoyed walking through the history of the cars and people who developed, raced and owned them. They were in the process of filling in the sink hole, which was a bummer for us cause we really wanted to see it. They have some of the huge rocks on display that fell on some of the cars. The only thing we did not like is that apparently everyone who goes there has to pose for a picture at the beginning and then they try to sale it to you at the end of the tour. I tried explaining to the sales clerk that we did not want to do this but she became very rude and stated we had too.
Also don't miss the Factory, it is just as impressive.
Are you planning to keep the sink hole destroyed vettes as they are?
RIP 8 corvettes
Great place. 3 young kids (2 girls even) loved the kidzone area where they could pretend to be an auto mechanic and color. Awesome cars must see!
Worth stopping to see. Everything Corvette!
We loved it! We took our 3 young children along and even they enjoyed looking at all the beautiful cars! My husband loves cars so he thoroughly enjoyed it. They also have a sinkhole exhibit due to the incident destroying several of their cars in 2014 so you get to see the crushed cars and the progress of repairing one of them. Great stop!!
Cool place to visit if you're a corvette fan (and who isnt!). Not a very large attraction and a bit pricey but still fun.
This was quite impressive. The collection of cars is everything a corvette enthusiast wants to see. I believe a model was represented from every year made. There were some concept cares too. There were several damaged cars on display from the sinkhole. You can also view the sinkhole. It is behind plexiglass and is definitely a construction zone. The huge rock that was on top of the Spyder is on display just outside the entrance. I believe it is worth stopping in on your drive.
