Here's Another Reason to Visit the National Corvette Museum
By PowerNation on April 27, 2021
Maybe you've been, or maybe it's on your bucket list, but let us tell you from experience that it's a must-see museum in your lifetime, especially if you're a gearhead. You don't need to be a fan of Corvette – you don't even need to be a fan of Chevrolet – but if you're a history buff looking to teleport into the past, the National Corvette Museum should be on your list this summer.
With the world returning to normalcy and travel becoming more widespread, if you were looking for reasons to take yourself or the family to the museum this summer, the National Corvette Museum just announced a 30,000-square-foot expansion to their already giant space. It's already massive in size, and adding all that square footage means we'll be needing to take a trip back soon.
The two-story 30,000-square-foot expansion will offer more space for people and cars alike to mingle and soak in the history of an iconic brand. Computer-generated images in a video posted below offer a rendering of what you can expect when it's complete. The building will offer incredible rotating displays and specialty exhibits to allow enthusiasts to enjoy more Corvette variants during their visit.
The expansion will include additional themed exhibits, which shouldn't come as too much of a surprise since Corvette has developed incredible prototypes and potent race cars over the years. The rest of the expansion will be for the guests to enjoy, including a lifetime members lounge, open theater space, a sensory calming roof for those with unique needs, and a kids zone education center. Sewell and Sewell Architects will take the lead for this project.
As was mentioned above, the museum is exceptional as it is, and the addition of these exhibits will only add to its incredible legacy. The last time the Corvette Museum made headlines was that destructive sinkhole that ruined a portion of their space, but having been there after it was fixed, Corvette did an exceptional job of incorporating that part of their history into the exhibit.
