About Us

America’s Sports Car… an exciting legend produced only in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The Museum features over 80 Corvettes in periodic settings, including mint classics, one-of-a-kind prototypes and modern-day wonders of engineering and design. Test your knowledge at interactive trivia kiosks, and don’t miss the chance to try a Corvette on for size in our lobby where we have a 2015 Stingray waiting for you. Displays continually rotate so no two visits are the same. Round out your visit with a souvenir from the Corvette Store, grab a bite to eat in the Corvette Cafe, and race over to the NCM Motorsports Park to spectate or take a lap!

New to the NCM Event schedule is a special, limited-space tour to France for the 24 Hours of Le Mans race. Here is the chance to see Corvette Racing against the world’s best GT cars in the most famous race of all. Just a few highlights of the tour include three days in the City of Lights with a visit to the Louvre and Eiffel Tower, a day at the Palace of Versailles, an evening ride on the Seine in the Compagnie des Bateaux-Mouches, a guided day-trip to World War II sights including Normandy and Omaha beaches, and so much more. We will have a professional guide with us the entire trip to assist with our travels. After four nights in Paris and a night in Normandy we will travel to Angers where we will stay throughout the Le Mans race.

The next three days will have us visiting the Le Circuit de la Sarthe (Le Mans track) as well as the town, with side tours of Angers and the surrounding area with our guide for those who want a break from the track events. Monday we depart Angers and travel back to Paris for one last night, with stops along the way in the Loire Valley. Check out of our hotel and continue with your plans of either more travel or to the airport. Hotels, ground transportation, tour tickets, all breakfasts, three dinners, Le Mans race tickets and Corral tickets are included. We have a very limited number of openings so make your plans early to join us in making memories, new friends, and seeing beautiful France.
