About The Museum

Since 1953 the Corvette has been America’s Sports Car. The National Corvette Museum was established as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit foundation with a mission of celebrating the invention of the Corvette; preserving its past, present and future; and educating the public about Corvette. The Museum opened in 1994 and is a 115,000 square foot facility located on a 55 acre campus. Bowling Green, Kentucky is home to the world’s only General Motors Corvette Assembly Plant.

The National Corvette Museum is conveniently located off Interstate 65 in South Central Kentucky. Less than one hour north of Nashville, TN and less than two hours south of Louisville, KY, the Museum is a quick and easy stopover if traveling by car, or a quick drive from the airport of your choice. We are located in the Central Time Zone.

When planning your trip, most visitors allow 1-2 hours for their visit to the Museum. Of course, if you are a Corvette or classic car buff, you may want to allow more than that!

Pets are NOT allowed in the Museum. This includes in strollers, carriers and purses. We do, however, welcome all service animals, as defined by the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA defines service animals as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Animals whose sole function is to provide assistance or emotional support but are not individually trained do not meet the definition of service animal under the ADA. These animals are not permitted inside our buildings.  Additional details are on our FAQ page.
