Enjoy looking at Chevy's version of the American sports car.

Come and see several different Corvettes built and designed for generations. Guests will view a 15-minute film upon entering, see prototypes, a display of Corvettes showing the changes and styles with every Corvette production on display, and background information on each. The lines of the building outside the museum were inspired by the car itself. One area of the exterior has a large circular yellow roof with a red spire called the "Skydome," and inside, it depicts the Corvette story from its past, present, and future. There are red umbrella tables on a patio in the front off to the side of the Corvette Café. The round courtyard and walkway are bricked in two-toned gray with designs and the museum's name. Take a picture of the black and white checkered race flag and the Corvette symbol.   

One display tells the story of when a sinkhole collapsed in the Skydome area of the museum that was 40 feet wide and 25 to 30 feet deep in the very early hours on February 12, 2014. The security cameras recorded the event and recorded 8 Corvettes getting swallowed up. Thankfully, no one was in the building at the time. The museum has since been restored. Head up to the Skydome floor to see the outline of the sinkhole size, although "mostly" filled in except a 48" manhole viewing window is in the exhibit. Out of the 8, 3 Corvettes have been fully restored, but the other 5 cars remain in the sinkhole exhibit. The 60 acres surrounding the museum are beautiful and well maintained. There are plant tours, a large store, a kids zone, and an area to purchase brand new Corvettes. Many Corvettes are delivered at the location each day.
