View Classic Corvettes at the National Corvette Museum

Begin, or renew, your love of the Corvette at the National Corvette Museum, as you gaze longingly at these classic sports cars that are an important piece of Americana and automobile history.

Introduced in 1953, the Corvette became a favorite, and eventually a classic, and the museum attracts enthusiasts from all over the world.  Exhibits and displays change, but you can count on seeing:  introductory film about the history of the Corvette, a look at retro displays outlining how the car became a classic, technical information relating to design and performance, racing, and a gift shop.  You’ll be seeing lots and lots of cars!

The National Corvette Museum is located at 350 Corvette Drive, in Bowling Green, Kentucky (map it), and is open daily , 8 am – 5 pm (except for Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Day, and New Years Day). 

Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors (55+), $4.50 for children 6-16, and kids 5 and younger are admitted free.  Special family rates, group rates, and various discounts are also available.

Every Corvette made is produced in Bowling Green, and a tour of the plant can also be arranged.  No cameras are allowed in the plant tours. There is a $5 charge (various discounts available), and online reservations are recommended.  There are souvenirs handed out at the end of the tour, but alas — you’ll not be driving away in one of these classic sports cars.
