Preparing for the Next Generation

As the National Corvette Museum continues to make necessary improvements to maintain the quality guests have come to expect from our world class establishment, we are enthusiastically progressing toward a 2 story-30,000 square foot addition to the Museum!

We are expanding with your help to prepare for the Next Generation!

Our state–of–the–art campus addition plans include:

• Specialty Exhibit Spaces and Rotating Displays
• Lifetime Members Lounge
• Open Theater Space
• Sensory Calming Room for Guests with Unique Needs
• Kids Zone Education Center
• Rooftop Members Lounge

We look forward to what the future holds for the Museum as we continue to build on every aspect of what we were created for – a Museum focused on educating, preserving, and exhibiting the stories of America’s Sports Car for all generations to enjoy.

We are working with Sewell and Sewell Architects on this project, as we did for our first expansion in 2009. The Museum team and architects will be working to bring this expansion to life as funding progresses for the project.

With the new gallery spaces afforded by this expansion, we will feature new exhibits housing more unique artifacts from Corvette’s rich history. The all new Lifetime Members Lounge will offer a quiet space to call yours where you can relax during visits to the Museum.

Your past generosity and continuing support are the links in our chain of creating new avenues to improve the Museum. Naming opportunities for various areas of the expansion are available and you can make a pledge with various giving timelines.

Funds donated to the expansion will be placed into a restricted account designated only to the Building Expansion Campaign.

We would love to talk with you and always enjoy hearing your thoughts.
