The National Corvette Museum was established in 1994 with the mission of celebrating the invention of the Corvette; preserving its past, present and future; and educating the public about Corvette. The Museum is a 115,000 square foot facility located on a 55 acre campus in Bowling Green, Kentuck, home to the world’s only General Motors Corvette Assembly Plant.
The exterior of the National Corvette Museum is noted for its award-winning architectural design. The sweeping lines of the building were inspired by the car it honors. The most prominent exterior feature is a large circular car salon encased by a striking yellow conical roof. High above soars a red 12-story spire. Known as the “Skydome,” this section of the Museum has become a landmark for the Bowling Green area.
The interior of the 115,000-square-foot building uses curved walls, geometric design and full-scale diorama displays to tell the story of the Corvette’s past, present and future. More than 80 Corvettes from every era since 1953 are displayed, with each display changing periodically.
Santa Clara Corvettes at the Museum
Santa Clara Corvettes, as have many of our members, has been a proud member of the museum for many years.
Quite a few of our members have visited the museum either in groups or individually. Members have also experienced the excitement of picking up their new cars there.
When visiting, look for our banner outside the museum and our display inside it.
