Special Emphasis Tours

Career Awareness
The National Corvette Museum is the perfect place for students to explore career options.  In addition to being a popular tourist attraction, we are like a mini city with a café, theater, store, insurance agency, an auto repair facility, a library and archives and a world-class race track.   To support these businesses, we have administrative and accounting offices along with IT and marketing professionals.  During the tour, students meet with our professionals and discuss their career, requirements and job opportunities. (2 hours)

Curriculum Tours
The National Corvette Museum serves as an educational resource for all to enjoy. Through our custom curriculum tours, your lessons in the classroom come to life in the museum’s many displays. Teaching your students about physics? American/world history? Design? Economics? We will create a lesson that fits your classroom content and bring it to your classroom, then your class will have the opportunity to have a student tour with reinforcement materials from the classroom lesson, which allows your students to learn the content of the lesson at a deep conceptual level.

Contact Steven Teleky, Museum Educator for more information and to plan your curriculum. [email protected] – (270) 777-4514

Classroom Outreach

Through our “Corvettes in the Classroom” program, the National Corvette Museum will visit your classroom to give a pre-visit in your classroom! This classroom visit ensures that your visit to the museum is as streamlined as possible. For a career or curriculum tour, students will engage in a lesson that connects the classroom to the tour they will be taking at the museum.

All lessons include formal-formative pre- and post-assessments to gauge student learning and ensure that no misconceptions are held about the content covered at the museum, before your visit! And of course, all lessons are accompanied and reinforced with a KTIP-style lesson plan with appropriate Kentucky and Core content standards addressed.

Call: 270-777-4514 to book a visit from the National Corvette Museum, or ask any questions about our educational tours.
