Have you visited the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY? Recently, our family took a quick road trip over to Bowling Green to tour the Corvette Assembly Plant and the Museum. I’ve never been on a tour like this where you can see the whole process from start to finish.
Corvette Assembly Plant
Visiting the Bowling Green Assembly Plant is an amazing experience. The tour itself starts with a brief safety film and then you begin a walking tour through the assembly plant. It takes about 1 1/2 to tour the plant.
Here are a few things to know before you arrive.
- You must wear closed toe shoes. No flip flops or sandals.
- There are designated parking lots for tourists. If you are not driving a GM vehicle, you will need to park in the farthest lot from the entrance.
- You are allowed to wear jackets or carry an umbrella, but you may not bring in any bags, purses, cameras, phones or electronic devices. Leave everything in the vehicle because there are no lockers or holding spots inside the facility.
- No pictures of any kind are allowed.
The tour takes you out on the assembly floor where you can see each piece of the Corvette being built. We saw the seats being installed, the doors attached, the wheels and dashboard put on the cars and then the final product ready to drive off the assembly line. When it was time for the brand new Corvettes to be started for the very first time, my son was invited to sit in the vehicle and push the start button and rev the engine. What an amazing experience for a 12 year old middle school boy!
The Corvette Museum
The Bowling Green Corvette Museum is located right across the street from the Assembly Plant. The tour is a self guided walk through the museum and takes you through the history of the Corvette. You can see the different body styles and designs of the Corvette as it has changed through the years.
If you have young kids, make sure you take time to let them play in the Kids Area!
