It was constructed in 1994 and opened to the public in September of that year. The museum is located only a quarter mile from the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, where Corvettes have been made since 1981. Public tours of the assembly plant are available.
Corvette meet-ups are also held at or near the plant.
