On National Corvette Day, the National Corvette Museum opened a new exhibit that explores the history, passion, and special connection between America and its favorite sports car. The new exhibit features an unprecedented collection of award-winning Corvettes from all around the country set against the backdrop of the region’s first fully immersive, nearly 360-degree video wall that permits the guest to travel through time, experiencing the Heartbeat of America on the street and the ground-pounding sound of American thunder on the track.
“Since 1953, America has been captivated by the Corvette. This new exhibit explores the longstanding love-affair that between Corvette owners and admirers through its mark on history,” explained Sharon Brawner, National Corvette Museum President and CEO. “To celebrate this milestone, we had to take this exhibit to the next level, and the Skywall does just that. We cannot wait for our members and guests to experience this immersive experience for the first time.”
A journey through the exhibit will connect Corvette’s relevance in society and pop culture over the past 70 years and features a spectacular collection of Corvettes that represent the vehicles history, from the all-new, electrified 2024 Corvette E-Ray to a National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) award-winning 1953 Corvette, serving as the perfect example of how the passion for Corvette began. Other iconic Corvettes and artifacts that highlight the love affair between America and Corvette are on display throughout the Museum including, a collection of Corvette toys and models from the George Biederman Collection, Barbie Corvette toys, a Disneyland Autopia Car, and a display LT6 engine.
Skydome Meets Skywall
An epic history requires an epic treatment, and this is exactly what the new Skywall does, by transforming the interior of the iconic Skydome into a jaw-dropping continuous video moment that captures the energy, sight, sound, and experience of Corvette. The continuous screen envelops the guest with immersive video and a spectacular new sound system that makes the roar of Corvette feel inches away. While Skywall’s first immersive experience expands on the love affair of the Corvette, the experience can be tailored to new exhibits and private rentals, making the Skydome a must-see destination for corporate clients in the region looking to wow guests.
