Visiting The National Corvette Museum

Whether you’re looking for a new or used car, truck, van, SUV, coupe or sedan the place to head to is Southtowne Motors of Newnan. With an impressive inventory of everything stylish from Buick Enclaves and Cadillac Escalades to GMC Yukon and Chevrolet Corvette, you’ll find the ride of your dreams at Southtowne.

When you want to take your new ride out for a spin, head for The National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The museum is the perfect stop for car enthusiasts who appreciate well-made cars of the past and present.

The museum has served as a means to learn all about Corvette’s through its exhibits, library and archives since it was established in 1994. Historians, collectors and the general public have access to a wide array of information covering the design, construction and development of the Corvette through historical memorabilia and literature.

The Corvette made its debut on the American scene in 1953 and has remained at the top of the list for sports car enthusiasts. At the museum’s 115,000 square foot facility, you’ll see more than 70 models from mint condition classics and prototypes that were never produced to current modern day designs.

Take your time looking at the exhibits and rare collectibles and memorabilia with a self-guided tour. After the tour, take advantage of the driving simulators for an exciting interactive spin and test your skills at the Pit Crew Challenge exhibit.

Be sure to stop by the Corvette Store to find the perfect souvenir from a selection of gift items, collectibles, home items, t-shirts and apparel. To end the day on a high note, step back in time and have a meal at the 50’s themed Corvette Cafe to refuel after a day of fun, history and education surrounding the Corvette.

Along with all the other things to see and do at the museum, through September 13, you’ll also have access to the 14-car Marque of Excellence exhibit that features award winning Corvettes.

The NCM is open from 8am-5pm, daily, with an admission fee of $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, $5 for kids 6-16 and kids ages 6 and under are free. While visiting the museum, ask about the Corvette Assembly Plant located directly across from the museum. The plant is scheduled to reopen for public tours in late 2013.

Stop by Southtowne Motors Monday through Saturday and take a “look-see” at what they have to offer to fit your lifestyle and your budget or to schedule a service check-up before hitting the road.
