nat corvette museumKENTUCKY (11/29/13) - 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 valid Kentucky drivers license or other proof of residency to take advantage of the special offer. Children will be admitted at the $1.00 price with adults presenting the Kentucky identification.

The Museum features over 70 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. Visitors can sit behind the wheel of a new Corvette, enjoy a number of new hands-on activities in our KidZone and take a drive in the educational Driving Simulators. A special "Two-Wheel Speed" exhibit is also currently on display through January 3, 2014, featuring a wide array of motorcycles of varying years and models.

"Dollar Days" is the Museum's way of giving back to Kentucky residents to thank them for their support and gives them an opportunity to see first-hand why the Corvette is one of the state's greatest resources and the official state sports car. "We are so proud to be able to showcase our Museum dedicated to this extraordinary automobile to our fellow Kentuckians. It is our mission to celebrate, educate and preserve Corvette's legendary past and future," states NCM Executive Director Wendell Strode. "Each visit to the Museum is different because exhibits are ever changing. We look forward to showing our Kentucky friends not only a wide variety of beautiful Corvettes, but also some amazing motorcycles, another part of America's history." Visitors can also take a chance to win a brand new 2014 Torch Red Stingray Coupe Corvette for only $10 and do some holiday shopping in the Corvette Store.

Since 1953 the Corvette has been America's Sports Car. The National Corvette Museum was established as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit foundation with a mission of celebrating the invention of the Corvette; preserving its past, present and future; and educating the public about Corvette.

The National Corvette Museum is 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: http://www.corvettemuseum.org/ or call (800) 53-VETTE (83883).
