As one of the world’s most popular auto museums, the National Corvette Museum (NCM) is a haven for auto lovers. Located in Bowling Green, Kentucky, the museum recently announced that it is weighing the possibility of expanding.
According to The News Wheel, the museum’s expansion plans include buying 205 more acres for the NCM Motorsports Park Complex, growing it to a total of 425 acres. The museum is also studying whether to add a new 30,000-square-foot building, and maybe other facilities as well, to the museum complex.
The National Corvette Museum is also featuring a new exhibit on the history of Chevrolet racing. This exhibit, which opened in June, covers Chevy’s racetrack legacy from the early 1900s to the present. Historic cars included in the exhibit include a 1910 Buick Bug, a 1957 Chevrolet “Black Widow” NASCAR, and a 1989 ZR1 24-Hour World Record Corvette.
The National Corvette Museum was established in 1994, and it features Corvettes from as far back as 1953 — the first year the model was in production. Bowling Green is the home of the assembly plant for Corvettes, and you can get public tours of the facilities. You can also check out the Corvette Hall of Fame, which features top racers who drive Corvette models.
