During our trip to Bowling Green, Kentucky, we visited the National Corvette Museum.
The museum opened in 1994 but has recently had national attention after a 60-foot sinkhole at the museum on February 12th that damaged eight irreplaceable vehicles on display at the museum.
The museum begins with a few Corvettes and a short film about the history of the Corvette.
The cars in the museum are drivable art.
They are so beautiful and each has so much detail to appreciate.
Zora Arkus-Duntov, who designed the Corvette, is even buried at the museum! The image above is the only Corvette he ever personally owned.
The are several areas for kids to enjoy. There was this interactive section where kids could practice working on cars. There was also a fun interactive maze to go through.
Corvettes Pulled Out of the Sinkhole
I was really intrigued to see the damaged cars that they pulled out of the sinkhole. It’s so sad that it happened to these irreplaceable historic treasures.
There is a window for guests to see where the sinkhole was and the most recent vehicle pulled from the wreckage. There is also a live webcam where you can see the work being done in that sinkhole area.
We really enjoyed our visit to the museum. You don’t have to be a huge Corvette fan to appreciate all that this museum has to offer.
