During the historic storms on December 11, 2021, the National Corvette Museum was spared any significant damage. All staff – National Corvette Museum, NCM Motorsports Park, and NCM Insurance – were reported as safe.
Fifteen hours after the events, the curatorial team verified that all the artifacts and vehicles in the collection were reported secure. Thirty-six hours after the storm, all individuals with an artifact on loan to the Museum were notified that their loaned items were not in harm’s way.
While much of the storm damage was isolated to the Museum’s Amphitheater, the Museum was closed over the weekend while crews restored power, cleared roadways of debris, and ensured that our areas were safe once again. We appreciate the calls, e-mails, and check-ins on our staff and institutions.
Our closure was necessary due to the circumstances, but we apologize for any inconvenience you may have encountered and appreciate your patience as we work through this unprecedented situation.
Unfortunately, the NCM Motorsports Park did not have the same fate as the Museum. The Motorsports Park is temporarily unsafe to welcome guests, and all activities are suspended until further notice. Insurance adjusters and crews have begun the assessment and clean-up efforts to help determine our rebuilding plan of the affected areas.
Our hearts are with those across the Commonwealth who these storms have impacted. Anyone who wishes to assist the Bowling Green community can learn to support by visiting bgky.org.
*Note: The Museum nor Motorsports Park can comment on the status of the Assembly Plant but appreciate all of those asking about their condition.
