Default National Corvette Museum

My first trip to the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green. Every Corvette enthusiast should get there at least once.


This is a little video tour of the place. A mix of all generations. Looking down the sinkhole was just eeeerie. What an awesome place!

I would really like to visit the museum this summer. What did it cost you to get in?

If I remember correctly it was $12 for adults and $10 for seniors. If you get down that way you won't regret it.

Thanks for the post. We plan on a visit this summer. Hopefully the plant tours open back up. I would like to see that too.

Thanks for posting... I was starting to think about short driving trips this spring. This would be a perfect long weekend trip...

Went there 3 1/2 years ago. The museum was awesome. I bought the build sheet and window stickers for both my C4 & C6 at the museum store. Some of the cars on display in the museum are cars I remember from magazines and never thought I would ever see in person.
Because I didn't know when I'd ever make it back, I splurged and did the private tour of the plant. It was so worth it. The coolest part of the tour was watching my 13 year old son start a new Stingray at the end of the assembly line and get a "birth certificate ".
Awesome place!!

nice video, thanks. Been by that place a bunch of times, just never had time to stop. Mike and also Btrett in the C_1 section have both had cars on display there. Brett restores 1953, 4 and 5 corvettes and they had his 53 there for a while. Mike built a reconstruction of the 1954 showcar, kinda of a Nomad looking piece and they also had his car for a while. Mikes build and showing is on U tube. Both live very near here in Indy.

Very cool video. My dad and I have taken a couple motorcycle trips to the museum over the years. Highly recommend the plant tour while you are there too.

Been there a few times did the plant tour twice once in the late 90s early 200s and a year or two ago well worth a trip

Thanks for the show. Member and have visited a couple of time. Get there when you can. Not very expensive at all. Not including fuel we spent $50. Admission for 2. Some trinkets from the store and lunch at the Cafe. Great day. Here's the pics I posted on Flickr.

Yup- a lot of fun for 50 bucks! A bargain today. Popcorn and a movie tickets on a Saturday night cost that much!
