The National Corvette Museum has named the entire month of December “Dollar Days” for residents of Kentucky who visit the Museum. All month long, Kentucky residents can tour the Museum for a $1.00 admission per person, and will only need to show a Kentucky drivers license to take advantage of the special admission offer. Children will be admitted at the $1.00 price with adults presenting the Kentucky identification.

Guests visiting will also be able to see the Museum’s completed 47,000 sq. ft. expansion including the Corvette Café, Library/Archives and Corvette Store. Corvette Boulevard features an indoor street scene with a barrel roof, street lights and sidewalks, and provides access to many new areas of the Museum’s building expansion.

The Museum features over 80 Corvettes, from the 1953, the first Corvette to capture the hearts of America, to one-of-a-kind prototypes, the only 1983 in existence and historic Corvettes normally unavailable to the general public. Guests can also sit behind the wheel of a new Corvette and photograph the experience, and race against the clock to change tires, fuel up and keep our Corvette race car in the lead as part of our Pit Crew Challenge exhibit.“Dollar Days” is the Museum’s way of giving back to Kentucky residents for their support and also gives them an opportunity to see first-hand why the Corvette is one of the state’s greatest resources and a true sports car. “We are proud to be able to showcase our Museum dedicated to this extraordinary automobile and celebrate, educate and preserve Corvette’s legendary past and future,” states NCM Executive Director, Wendell Strode. “Each visit to the Museum is different because things are ever changing, and guests visiting in December will be able to see new displays including a temporary Corvair exhibit and some of their favorites. We look forward to welcoming our Kentucky friends.” Visitors can also take a chance to win a 2010 Corvette for only $10 and do some holiday shopping in our new 4,600 square-foot Corvette Store offering unique gift items found nowhere else.

The National Corvette Museum is a member-driven, non-profit foundation dedicated to educating the public through the preservation of the Corvette’s past, present and future heritage.

Open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT, the Museum is located at Exit 28 off I-65 in Bowling Green, KY. For more information on the National Corvette Museum, visit our website at: or call (800) 53-VETTE (83883).
