Kentucky Has An Entire Museum Dedicated To Corvettes And It’s As Awesome As You’d Think
Start your engines! Kentucky may be horse country, but there’s an attraction here that’s all about
horsepower. The National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, is a place dedicated to this American icon, and it is a must-visit for any and all car enthusiasts in the Bluegrass State.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Bowling Green, Kentucky, is no stranger to unique museums. Within this city, the Kentucky Museum houses a
massive homage to Duncan Hines, while the Historic Railpark & Train Museum is one big locomotive love letter. So it's not surprising that in this museum mecca in Kentucky, you'll find the National Corvette Museum, too.
This unique museum opened in 1994 as a home, library, archives, and exhibition space for all things Corvettes.
This 115,000-square-foot space showcases America's sports car in a variety of ways, with over 80 cars displayed in periodic settings, including a mid-century barbershop, a service station, and an historic race track.
Visitors can admire classic Corvettes in mint condition, one-of-a-kind prototypes that never went into production, and modern-day marvels of engineering and design.
The museum also features rare collectibles and memorabilia; it's a place sure to please even the most die-hard car enthusiast. Interactive elements abound here, too. Visitors have the opportunity to sit behind the wheel of a Corvette... and register to drive one home, too...
Even the most avid fans will learn something new here. An audio tour enhances the self-guided museum experience, and can easily be
downloaded off the Museum's website.
And when you're hungry, idle up to the Corvette Café to fill your tank.
The Corvette Museum even takes its exhibits on the road -- recently, the museum hosted the
Museum in Motion exhibit in an 83-foot tractor-trailer that transformed into a 1,100-square-foot memorial in honor of 9/11. What a fun opportunity for folks all across the Bluegrass to enjoy this epic museum.
There's nowhere in the country quite like the National Corvette Museum. This museum is a celebration of one of the most iconic pieces of American culture -- the automobile -- and it really is a must-visit day trip in Kentucky.
