See over 70 Corvettes in periodic settings including a mid-century barbershop, service station and historic race track. Exhibit Hall features special displays that change regularly. For hands-on activities visit the KidZone, Pit Crew Challenge and numerous trivia kiosks, then try a Corvette on for size in the lobby. The Corvette Store offers apparel, collectibles, home and gift items. On-site 50's-inspired Corvette Cafe serves breakfast, lunch and snacks.

Please note that the museum is still OPEN despite the sinkhole in our Skydome building. The Skydome is the only portion of the Museum closed for tours, however guests are able to see into the Dome through our plexiglass window to catch a glimpse of the hole and on-going construction work.

If you are a Corvette fan, a trip to this Mecca is very worthwhile. The factory tour was more interesting than we expected, and the museum was great!

Really enjoyed the Corvette Assembly Plant tour. We did the combo ticket that included the museum and the plant tour. The museum also has a portion dedicated to the Sink Hole that developed in 1964 in the museum and destroyed several corvettes. Be aware that if you are driving a non-GM car, you have to park a long way from... More

Spent approximately an hour in the Corvette museum following the Corvette assembly plant tour. This museum has Corvettes of all types and does a great job explaining the history of each car. Site of the huge sinkhole event several years ago where 8 Corvettes were swallowed up in a giant hold. The museum did a GREAT job of portraying this... More

The Corvette museum is across the street from the factory. A combined tour is the ticket although the factory will close in June and not reopen for tours for about eighteen months during a refit. The museum does a very good job of portraying the entire history of the Corvette. There are a number of excellent examples from each generation... More

On business in the area and decided to go here. Have wanted to in the past. I really thought the museum was well done, lots to read and see. Especially appreciated the sink hole section. Nice cafe and gift shop with reasonable prices. Appreciated learning how the name Corvette was chosen. Great little Kidz Zone.

Just such a well-planned facility to present beautifully maintained Corvettes. Classic and rare cars were well-labeled and well-organized. This is the place where a sinkhole swallowed some classic Corvettes and they did a very good job of showing what happened and the aftermath. We had lunch there in their diner-like restaurant. Very good. More enjoyable yet was getting to see... More

A GREAT time! I signed up for the VIP experience, quaint tours of the museum and the Corvette plant. I was with two other people, our very knowledgeable and personable guide was Larry McCool. As far as I'm concerned it was well worth the price of the VIP package. Larry knew great detail about every attraction. Well laid out. Great... More

Enjoyed the Corvette Museum. We are not ardent Corvette lovers but still enjoyed. The displays are well done and they certainly have the Vettte for you. The highlight was how they have made the terrible damage and interruption of the sink hole incident into a major attraction. Very much enjoyed the pictures, history, and display of the damaged cars resulting... More
